Horn is a 66-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. In her free time, she likes to listen to the radio, watch Khmer movies on television, and visit the pagoda.
One month ago, Horn 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 Horn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On September 04, 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 clearly again so I can return to my work on the rice farm.”
