Si Yean is a 57-year-old vegetable seller from Cambodia. She has two sons, two daughters, and enjoys looking after her two grandchildren when she has free time.
One year ago, Si Yean developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Si Yean learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On November 21, 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.
Si Yean said, “I hope that after my operation, I will be able to see clearly again and I will be able to return to my work selling vegetables at the market.”
