Sruon is a 62-year-old fried banana seller from Cambodia. She is married and has three sons, three daughters, and five grandchildren. Sruon lives with her husband and their youngest daughter, who is still in school. In her free time, Sruon likes to listen to the news on the radio.
Two years ago, Sruon developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so she is not able to go places on her own.
When Sruon learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On November 16th, 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 raising $253 to fund her procedure and care.
Sruon shared, “I hope I can go outside easily and recognize things well after surgery.”
