Ny is a 61-year-old rice farmer with one son, one daughter, and four grandchildren. Currently, Ny lives with her husband and her grandchildren. Her husband recently became unable to work, so she and her daughter are working to support the family as a rice farmer and selling food. In her free time, Ny likes to listen to the news on the radio and play with her grandchildren.
Three years ago, Ny developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, sensitivity to light, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside. When Ny learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for over three hours seeking treatment. On July 19th, doctors will perform a cataract surgery and a lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, CSC is requesting support to help fund this $229 procedure.
Ny shares what this surgery means for her, “I hope after surgery I will be able to see my field well and work in an easier way. I can enjoy life with my family.”
