Touch is a 72-year-old grandmother from Cambodia. She has four children, nine grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio in her free time.
Five months ago, Touch developed a cataract in each eye, causing her tearing and cloudy vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Touch learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 14, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
She says, “I hope that I will be able to see more clearly and can go join the ceremonies at the pagoda and help take care of my grandchildren.”
