Luy is a retired rice farmer from Cambodia. She has four sons and six grandchildren. She likes watching the Cambodian concert channel.
Two years ago, Luy developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, itchiness, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Luy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for over an hour seeking treatment. On January 16, 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.
She says, “I hope I can see again because my children are worried about me.”
