Nos is a 72-year-old fisherwoman from Cambodia. She and her husband have six children together, and fifteen grandchildren total. Her children and husband work together on a farm planting rice. She loves to read religious texts and makes a lot of time to attend ceremonies.
One year ago, Nos developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision and tearing. Her eyesight has deteriorated in the past three weeks.
When Nos learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three-and-a-half hours by taxi seeking treatment. On June 3rd, 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.
Nos shared, “Since I got this eyesight problem, I can’t read the books I like to read, and I can’t go by myself to attend a ceremony. I hope this surgery clears up my eyes enough that I can do these things again.”
