Tha is a 55-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has five children, six grandchildren, and enjoys watching Khmer dramas on television in her spare time.
One year ago, Tha developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision and irritation. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Tha learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On December 09, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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.
Tha said, “I hope that I will be able to see more clearly so I can help around the house and return to planting rice at the farm.”
