Masrey is a 69-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has five children, six grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the radio and watching after her grandchildren.
Five months ago, Masrey developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Masrey learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for five hours seeking treatment. On October 1st, 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.
“I hope I can see clearly again so I can help look after my grandchildren.”
