Sinat is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has one daughter, two sons, and five grandchildren. She enjoys listening to monks pray on the radio.
Three years ago, Sinat developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, irritation, clouded lenses, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sinat learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On December 6, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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.
Her daughter says, “I hope my mom’s surgery goes well so she can see clearly. I won’t have to worry about her going blind.”
