Sun is a 62-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has four children, eight grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio in her free time.
One year ago, Sun developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision and irritation. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On July 4, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $398 procedure.
She says, “I hope that after my surgery, I will be able to join the ceremony at the pagoda, cook for my family, and take care of my grandchildren.”
