Sok Khom is a 56-year-old mother of four children. She has has two daughters, two sons, and three grandchildren. Sok Khom has recently stopped farming. Sadly, her husband died 10 years ago and she lives with all her children. Her oldest daughter works as a tailor and her other three children are students. When she is not running the household, she likes to watch movies on TV or the news on Facebook.
Five months ago, Sok Khom developed a cataract in her left eye causing her blurry vision and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sok Khom learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On September 20th, 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 $229 procedure.
Sok Khom shared, “I hope I can see clearly again. I can help my daughter to take care of my grandchildren and cook well for my children.”
