Ron is 60-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She lives with her husband and youngest daughter. She has two sons and eight grandchildren as well. She tends to the gardens around their house and raises vegetables. At night she enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
One year ago, Ron developed a cataract in her left eye eye, causing her irritation, tearing and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ron learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On June 2nd, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Ron said, “I hope that can see enough to take care of my grandchildren, and keep planting all the vegetables around the house.”
