Sopheap is a 64-year-old plant seller from Cambodia. She lives and works with her husband. They have six children together, and ten grandchildren in turn. All of her children are married work in different areas. She enjoys traveling to different pagodas to attend ceremonies.
One year ago, Sopheap developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, and photophobia. Her vision has worsened significantly in recent weeks.
When Sopheap learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one hour seeking treatment. On June 3rd, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Sopheap said, “I can’t plant flowers without my eyesight, and I can’t travel by myself either. I hope that my surgery is successful so that I can come back and do these things, and visit with my grandchildren.”
