Koemsor is a 42-year-old farmer from Cambodia who is married with two sons, one daughter, and one grandchild. During her free time, she enjoys watching Khmer and Indian movies.
Two years ago, Koemsor developed a pterygium in each eye. A pterygium is a condition in which excess tissue grows over the eye, causing blurry vision, irritation, and tearing.
Koemsor traveled three hours to reach our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), for treatment. On May 2, doctors at CSC will surgically remove the excess tissue from Koemsor’s eyes. After this procedure, she will be able to see clearly again. CSC is requesting $148 to help fund this medical intervention.
