Kompou is a rice and potato farmer from Cambodia. She has one son, five daughters, and three grandchildren. She enjoys watching Khmer and Thai dramas on TV.
One year ago, Kompou developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision, headaches, tearing, and itchiness. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Kompou learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for eight hours seeking treatment. On March 14, 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.
She says, “I hope my vision is restored so I can return to work and support my family again.”
