Srang is a 61-year-old Khmer cake seller from Cambodia. Srang comes from a family of thirty, and she enjoys watching Khmer dramas on television in her free time.
Four months ago, Srang developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her tearing, itchiness, and blurred vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Srang learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On August 14, 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 I will be able to see more clearly, and will be able to recognize people’s faces and go outside on my own.”
