Nheng is a 73-year-old rice farmer with one son, four daughters, and ten grandchildren. Nheng lives with her husband and their youngest daughter, who is also a farmer. Nheng shared that she likes to listen to the monks pray on the radio and visit the pagoda.
One year ago, Nheng developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision and tearing. As a result, she has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so she cannot go places on her own.
When Nheng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 14th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $253 to fund this procedure.
Nheng says, “After surgery, I hope my eye can see better and I can do more by myself.”
