Leng is a 62-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has four children, three grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio and making visits to the local pagoda.
Five months ago, Leng developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Leng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On December 16th, 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 that I will be able to see more clearly so I can recognize things and be able to go outside again. And I hope I will be able to help with the housework and help take care of my grandchildren again,” Leng shared.
