Meet Heam, a 60-year-old grandma from Cambodia! Heam, mother of four and grandma of one, works as a tailor.

Three months ago, Heam’s vision began to blur due to mature cataracts in both of her eyes. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), tells us, “She can no longer work as a tailor sewing because that requires sharp eyesight.”

The medical team adds, “Heam is sad that her grandchild has to help look after her and she cannot help support, cook, or care for her family as before.” In order to correct her vision and prevent further blindness, Heam requires surgery. For just $150, we can ensure that Heam receives this surgery and is able to return to the job she loves so much.
