Mut is a 67-year-old farmer with one daughter, three sons, and six grandchildren. Mut lives with her husband and does not go to the rice field anymore due to her vision. Instead, she stays home and cares for her grandchildren. She enjoys listening to the monks pray and joining ceremonies at the pagoda.
Five years ago, Mut developed a cataract in her left eye causing her sensitivity to light, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Mut learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours with her daughter seeking treatment. On June 14th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Mut shared, “I hope I can see well again so I can do housework, cook, and plant vegetables around my home.”
