Yean is a 63-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has five siblings and enjoys watching Khmer dramas in her free time.
Five months ago, Yean developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Yean learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 14, 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 operation I will be able to see more clearly and can go outside and help take care of my nieces and nephews.”
