Ksae is a 62-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has four sons and nine grandchildren, and enjoys watching the news and Khmer dramas on television.
Three years ago, Ksae developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision, irritation, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ksae learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 6, 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 $211 procedure.
She says, “I hope that after my surgery I will be able to see clearly so that I can cook and take care of my grandchildren.”
