Son is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has three sons, four daughters, and sixteen grandchildren. She likes to listen to radio programs and go to her local pagoda.
One year ago, Son developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision, clouded lenses, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Son learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On April 26, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
She says, “I look forward to going to the local pagoda, taking care of my grandchildren, and being able to join in ceremonies.”
