Nov is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has a son, six daughters, and twenty grandchildren. She likes to listen to monks pray on the radio.
Four years ago, Nov developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision, photophobia, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Nov learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On October 2, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 want to go to the pagoda and take care of my grandchildren.”
