Lim is a rice farmer with ten grandchildren from Cambodia. She has five children and enjoys listening to the monks pray.
Three years ago, Lim developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision, burning, irritation, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Lim learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On January 22, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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.
“I hope my mother-in-law’s surgery is successful so she can see everything clearly and so she can easily work and walk outside. I hope to not worry about her vision loss anymore,” says Lim’s son-in-law.
