Thou is a 60-year-old woman from Cambodia. In her free time, she enjoys listening to monks praying on the radio and participating in ceremonies at the pagoda.
About three months ago, Thou developed a cataract in each eye, which has caused her to experience blurred vision, pain, and tearing. As a result, it is difficult for her to see things clearly, and she worries about the future deterioration of her vision.
Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $292 to fund a phaco procedure and an intraocular lens implant for each of Thou’s eyes. The surgery is scheduled to take place on April 4 and, once completed, will hopefully restore Thou’s vision and allow her to live more comfortably.
