Rith is a 58-year-old chef from Cambodia. She enjoys looking after her grandchild and listening to the monks pray on the radio in her free time.
One year ago, Rith developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her tearing, photophobia, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Rith learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled there seeking treatment. On December 11th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract 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.
“I hope that I will be able to see so I can help look after my grandchild again,” Rith shared.
