Hen is a 71-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has three sons, four daughters, and twenty grandchildren. She enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio at home when she has free time.
Two years ago, Hen developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Hen learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On February 27th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $425 procedure.
“I hope that I will be able to see clearly again so I can help look after my grandchildren and I can visit the pagoda.”
