On is a 59-year-old rice farmer. She has three sons, three daughters, and many grandchildren. On lives with her eldest daughter, who also works as a farmer. In her free time, On likes to watch TV and listen to the monks pray on the radio.
Over the past year, On developed a cataract in her left eye causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When On learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On October 14th, doctors will perform a small incision 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.
On shared, “I hope my eye can see well so I can go back to the rice field and do some housework well.”
