Ly is 69 years old and has one daughter and two grandchildren. Sadly, Ly’s husband passed away last year. Now, Ly lives with her daughter who works as a rice farmer.
Two years ago, Ly 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 Ly learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On November 8th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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.
Ly shared, “I hope my eye will see clearly again so I can help my daughter more at home with housework and with looking after my grandchildren.”
