Chin is a 51-year-old rice farmer with two sons and one grandchild. Chin’s elder son is a farmer and her younger son is a student. Chin likes to listen to the news on the radio.
Three years ago, Chin developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her photophobia and blurry vision. As a result, Chin is very worried about falling when walking and has not been able to go places on her own.
When Chin learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for three and a half hours hoping to undergo treatment. On February 14th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in Chin’s right eye. CSC is helping Chin raise $229 to fund this procedure so she will be able to see clearly.
Chin shared, “I hope after surgery my eye can see clearly. I want to be able to plant rice well and help my son to take care of my grandchild.”
