Meet Oeun, a 68-year old grandmother from Cambodia with five sons, two daughters, and ten grandchildren. According to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she enjoys visiting the pagoda and listening to the monks pray.
“Two years ago Oeun developed a cataract in both eyes. This causes her blurred vision, tearing, irritation, and she is afraid of sunshine. She can’t see everything clearly, recognize faces easily, do work well, or go anywhere outside on her own,” explains CSC.
For $225, Oeun will undergo a cataract surgery that will remove the cloudy lenses from both of her eyes and replace them with artificial lenses. The funding also includes post-operative care, and after the surgery Oeun will be able to see clearly again.
