Chhenghuon is a sculptor from Cambodia. She has four daughters, five sons, and forty grandchildren. She likes to listen to monks pray on the radio.
Two years ago, Chhenghuon developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision, burning, irritation, itchiness, and clouded lens. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chhenghuon learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for half an hour seeking treatment. On June 1, 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.
She says, “I hope my vision is clear again after surgery so I can help my family to do work at home and take care of my grandchildren.”
