Narin is 60 years old and married with two daughters and five grandchildren. She likes to watch comedy programs on TV and listen to monks pray on the radio.
Three years ago, Narin developed a cataract in each eye, causing her to have blurred vision, pain, cloudy lenses, and extreme sensitivity to light. It is difficult for her to see things clearly, recognize faces, do any work, and go anywhere outside on her own.
Finally, Narin learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). She traveled for one hour with her daughter to reach CSC for treatment. She is scheduled to undergo cataract surgery on February 3.
However, she cannot afford this treatment. CSC is requesting $292 to help fund her procedure. After her procedure, Narin will be able to see clearly again.
Narin says, “I hope I can see everything more clearly than now so that I can help my daughter at home and go to the pagoda or anywhere else outside by myself.”
