Chhroy is a 66-year-old woman from Cambodia. She is a grandmother with two sons, four daughters, and 12 grandchildren.
“Chhroy developed a cataract in each eye 5 years ago. This causes her blurred vision and irritation. She can’t see everything clearly, do work well, or go anywhere outside on her own,” explains her doctor at Children’s Surgical Centre in Cambodia (CSC).
Chhroy traveled to CSC for care, as she is unable to afford the procedure on her own. $225 funds cataract surgery that will remove the cloudy lenses from both of her eyes and replace them with artificial lenses. Funding for her surgery includes post-operative care, and after the surgery, she will be able to see clearly again.
