Bach is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has a daughter, eight sons, and ten grandchildren. She enjoys meditating and going to the local pagoda in her free time.
Two years ago, Bach developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her photophobia, blurred vision, and irritation. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Bach learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 4, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
She says, “I want to go to the local pagoda, be able to join in ceremonies and take care of my grandchildren.”
