Bopha is a 64-year-old married vegetable farmer who has one son and two daughters. Bopha lives with her husband who is a fisherman. She likes to listening to the news and comedy shows on her phone in her free time.
Four years ago, Bopha developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Bopha learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled with her son seeking treatment. On June 8th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Bopha shared, “I hope I can see well after surgery so I can plant crops and travel on my own.”
