Savorn is a potato, watermelon, and rice farmer from Cambodia. She likes to watch Khmer and Thai dramas on TV, as well as listen to the news on the radio.
Two years ago, Savorn developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurred vision, pain, photophobia, and itching. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Savorn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On January 29, doctors will perform small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
She says, “I hope that I will be able to see everything more clearly now so I can feed my animals and so I can cook for my family. I also hope that I will be able to anywhere I want by myself.”
