Ory is a 68-year-old rice farmer who lives with and takes care of her brother, who has a developmental disability. During her free time, she likes to listen to monks pray on the radio.
Five years ago, Ory developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her to experience light sensitivity, eye tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly and this has made caring for herself and her brother more challenging.
When Ory learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On July 7th, doctors will perform 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 $253 procedure.
Ory says, “I hope my eye can see clearly again so I can keep planting rice and caring for my brother.”
