Yeang is a grandmother of twenty from Cambodia. She has four sons, two daughters, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio and visit the pagoda in her free time.
Seven months ago, Yeang developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry and cloudy vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Yeang learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 14, doctors will perform a small incision cataract 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.
She says, “I hope that after my surgery I will be able to see clearly and can join the ceremony at the pagoda.”
