Savoeun is a 61-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio, visiting the Pagoda, and spending time with her six grandchildren in her free time.
Three months ago, Savoeun developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Savoeun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On October 09, 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.
Savoeun said, “I hope that my eyes will be able to see clearly and that I can return to my work on the rice farm.”
