Sanh is a 64-year-old farmer from Cambodia. She has one son, three daughters and two grandchildren. She supplements her income by baking and selling Khmer cakes. In her free time she likes to listen to monks pray on the radio.
Three years ago, Sanh developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sanh learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two-and-a-half hours by taxi seeking treatment. On August 3rd, 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 your help to fund this $229 procedure.
Sanh shared “I hope after surgery I can help my family with the housework, take care my grandchildren, and spend more time making cakes to sell. I will be happy to be more independent.”
