Seu is a 68-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has eight children, ten grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio and making visits to the local pagoda.
Three months ago, Seu developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Seu learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On January 13th, 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.
“I hope that I will be able to see clearly and can take care of my grandchildren and help with the housework,” Seu said.
