Sam is a 63-year-old craftswoman from Cambodia. She has five children, eight grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio in her free time.
Five months ago, Sam developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sam learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On October 02, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
Sam, said, “I hope that once my surgery is complete, I will be able to see clearly again and can return to my work.”
