“When Tem’s eyesight was better she liked to read and watch Khmer drama on TV,” our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), tells us. Meet Tem, a 67-year-old woman from Cambodia! Tem has a mature cataract in her right eye which has blurred her vision.

CSC adds, “Tem began losing her vision a year ago. She can no longer work on the rice farm to support her family and relies on her daughter to care for her which means she also has to miss work.”

Tem’s treatment will improve her eyesight and prevent blindness. Tem says, “I am looking forward to being able to move around on my own and go anywhere!” With $150, we can fund Tem’s cataract surgery and ensure that she is able to return to work and become independent again!
