Thol is a 64-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two sons, two daughters, and eight grandchildren. She likes to watch Khmer dramas on TV.
Six months ago, Thol developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, and inability to go anywhere outside on her own. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Thol learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 23rd, 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.
“I am anxious about my mother’s eye irritation, I hope that she can see everything better, so she can recognize her grandchildren well,” Thol’s daughter said.
