Vet is a 59-year-old rice farmer who is married and has six sons, one daughter, and eight grandchildren. Vet’s husband also works as a farmer, and their youngest son lives with them as he is in school. In her free time, Vet likes to watch the news and movies on TV.
Doing all Vet needs and enjoys doing has gotten more difficult for her. About one year ago, Vet developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision, photophobia, and tearing.
When Vet learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 14th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $253 to fund her procedure.
Vet shared, “After surgery, I hope my eye can see well again. I would like to go to the rice field and do all my housework more easily.”
