Meet Sunnary, a 55-year-old Cambodian woman who loves everything from cooking to watching her favorite Khmer dramas on TV. Sunnary used to enjoy these activities regularly, but since she developed glaucoma her vision has rapidly deteriorated, making it difficult for her to perform even her most basic daily chores.

“Sunnary has blurred vision in both eyes due to glaucoma. Her eyes burn and is often painful,” our medical partner Children’s Surgical Center tells us. “She is unhappy that she cannot care and cook for her family as she used to, and has had to stop selling goods in the market to earn an income.” She misses cooking, and most of all misses watching her favorite shows, but cannot afford the cost to treat her glaucoma.

For $300, Sunnary will be able to undergo surgery to treat her glaucoma and reverse her vision loss. This operation will not only restore Sunnary’s vision and ability to resume her routine, it will also eliminate the pain and burning she’s experienced for so long.
