Saron is a 63-year-old vegetable farmer from Cambodia. She has one son, three daughters, and four grandchildren. When she has free time, she enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
Two years ago, Saron developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision and irritation. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Saron learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On January 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 $229 procedure.
“I hope that I will be able to see again and can return to taking care of and selling my vegetables,” she said.
