Hoeun is a 70-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has six children, eight grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio in her spare time.
One year ago, Hoeun developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Hoeun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On October 08, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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.
Hoeun said, “I hope that I will be able to see clearly after surgery so I can return to the pagoda and join the ceremony, and also help with the housework.”
