“When Um’s eyesight was better she liked watching the news on TV,” shares our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). Meet 74-year-old Um! Um lives with her family in Cambodia and enjoys taking care of her nine grandchildren.

“Um began losing her eyesight three years ago,” explains CSC. Um has a hypermature cataract in her left eye, a condition that blurs her vision and has made it impossible for her to work on her rice farm with her children. After traveling for six hours on poor roads with her daughter to reach our medical partner, Um remains hopeful that her eyesight will improve with cataract surgery.

Let’s help Um restore her vision and prevent future blindness by raising $150! Together we can ensure that Um receives the care she needs.
