Bo is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has one son, one daughter, and nine grandchildren. She likes going to the local pagoda and listening to monks pray on the radio.
Two years ago, Bo developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her tearing, blurred vision, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Bo learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 10, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 I can see everything clearly so I can learn more about Buddha and I can lead an independent life.”
