Seng is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She is married. She has two brothers and two sisters. She likes to listen to monks pray on the radio.
A year ago, Seng developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Seng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On January 7, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
She says, “I want to go the local pagoda and lead an independent life.”
