Sout is a hairdresser from Cambodia. She has four sons, two daughters, and 10 grandchildren. She enjoys reading books about Buddha.
One year ago, Sout developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her photophobia, eye irritation, and blurred vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sout learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On February 13, doctors will perform a small incision 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.
Her daughter-in-law says, “I am very worry about my mother-in-law’s vision, I think she may be blind. I worry about her and hope surgery will help her.”
