About This Fundraiser

I am planning to go to Gambia with Vision Care USA in February 2020 to render anesthesia care to patients who undergo eye surgeries.

This will be my 4th time participating in this mission with Vision Care USA in Africa. Every time I go, I have felt so blessed and fortunate to use my skills to make a difference in those who have little to no resources otherwise. Some patients would walk miles and miles across a desert to receive cataract surgery, a procedure that is considered to be simple in US and Korea. These patients would then have to wait for an entire year until our next visit to receive further treatment for their other eye.

Your donation will allow me to administer anesthesia to these patients and give them the sight they have been waiting for after many years of near blindness.

Thank you so much for your contribution.
