Seb is a retired rice farmer with three sons, three daughters, and fifteen grandchildren. A few years ago, her husband passed away from hypertension, and Seb moved in with her youngest daughter, also a rice farmer. At home, Seb enjoys listening to the radio, visiting her local pagoda, and spending time with her family.
Two years ago, Seb developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking. This limits her in being able to go places on her own.
When Seb learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours to seek treatment. On March 6th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs support to fund this $253 procedure.
Seb said, “I hope I can see again after surgery. I would like to help my daughter cook and go to the pagoda by myself.”
