Sarie is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She is married and has one son. She likes to watch TV, listen to news on the radio, and read about Buddha.
One year ago, Sarie developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision, pain, headache, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sarie learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for six hours seeking treatment. On June 6, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $211 procedure.
She says, “I hope I can see everything clearly after surgery. I hope to continue my work as farmer and spend time with my family.”
