Mun is a chicken and duck farmer from Cambodia. She has five children, one grandchild, and enjoys listening to music and the news on the radio.
Two years ago, Mun developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision and vision loss. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Mun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 30, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 hope that after my surgery, I will be able to see clearly so I can go back to my work feeding the chicken and ducks, as well as planting crops.”
