Son is a 58-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has three son, two daughters, and fifteen grandchildren. Her whole family takes part in the rice planting. She spends most of her free time reading Buddhist literature.
Six months ago, the retina of Son’s left eye detached, causing her loss of vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Son learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four-and-a-half hours seeking treatment. On May 8th, eye surgeons will perform a retinal detachment repair procedure in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $648 procedure.
Son’s husband said, “I miss having her work beside me, and I want her to be able to go anywhere she likes by herself. So I hope this surgery helps her see clearly.”
