Yeang is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two daughters, two sons, and ten grandchildren. She enjoys listening to monks pray on the radio.
Seven years ago, Yeang developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, photophobia, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Yeang learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for five hours seeking treatment. On November 5, 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.
Her son says, “I hope my mom can see better after the operation and be independent again.”
