Horn is a 63-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has three children, eight grandchildren, and enjoys watching Khmer television dramas in her free time.
One year ago, Horn developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Horn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On July 15, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $211 procedure.
She says, “I hope that after my surgery I am able to return to my work on the rice farm.”
