Ny is a 62-year-old grandmother with two sons, one daughter, and many grandchildren. She is now divorced from her husband and lives with her oldest daughter who works as a cleaner in a restaurant. Most of the time, she stays home and helps her daughter take care of the grandchildren. When not caring for her grandchildren, she likes to listen to the monks pray on the radio.
Two years ago, Ny developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision and sensitivity to light. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ny learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for an hour seeking treatment. On September 10th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Ny shared, “I hope I can see clearly and well again, and that I can see my grandchildren’s faces again. I hope to help my daughter cook and go to the pagoda by myself.”
