Yen is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has a son, six daughters, and twenty grandchildren. She likes to go to the local pagoda and listen to monks pray on the radio.
Three years ago, Yen developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurred vision and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Yen learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On June 4, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 look forward to go to the local pagoda, join in ceremonies, and take care of my grandchildren.”
