Leang is a 51-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. In her spare time, she enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
Six months ago, Leang developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her vision loss. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Leang learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On December 23rd, doctors will perform a small incision 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 $211 procedure.
“I hope that I will be able to see more clearly so I can return to planting rice and be able to go anywhere I want to outside on my own again,” Leang shared.
