Sinuon is a 60-year-old woman from Cambodia who is married and has one son, two daughters, and five grandchildren. In her free time, Sinuon likes to listen to monks pray on the radio.
About one year ago, Sinuon developed a cataract in each eye, which has caused her to experience blurred vision, tearing, sensitivity to light, and cloudy lenses. As a result, it is difficult for her to see things clearly, recognize faces, go anywhere outside, and do any work.
Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $398 to fund small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant for each of Sinuon’s eyes. The surgery is scheduled to take place on July 6 and, once completed, will hopefully restore Sinuon’s vision to its former state and allow her to live more comfortably.
