Nop is a 60-year-old farmer from Cambodia. She works on a rice plantation. She has never married and lives with her younger sister. In her free time, Nop enjoys cooking, gardening, reading, and walking in nature. She and her sister like to relax in the evening and listen to monks preaching on the radio.
Two years ago, Nop developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision and irritation. These symptoms have worsened in the past five months. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Nop learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On December 11th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Nop shared, “I hope after my surgery I can see well and help my sister with everything, and together we can go to the pagoda and pray again.”
