Mach is a 67-year-old farmer. She is married with two daughters and one grandchild. Mach likes to watch the news and Khmer dramas on TV and go to the pagoda to join ceremonies.
Two years ago, Mach developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision, cloudy lenses, pain, and burning. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, doing work, and going outside on her own.
When Mach learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for eight hours seeking treatment. On September 22, CSC surgeons removed her cataracts and replaced them with lens implants.
Now, Mach needs help to pay for this $292 procedure. After recovery, she should be able to see clearly.
“I hope I can see things more clearly,” she says, “so that I can do any work easily, sell bags or clothes, and go anywhere outside by myself without needing to disturb another person to take care of me anymore.”
