Leab is a 73-year-old vegetable farmer from Cambodia. She has four sons, seven daughters, and many grandchildren. At home, she likes to play with her grandchildren and listen to the monks pray on the radio.
Three months ago, Leab developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, eye irritation, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Leab learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 23rd, doctors will perform a small incision 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 $229 procedure.
“I hope that my mother will see everything better after the surgery. Right now I do very much worry about her eye,” Leab’s son said.
