Yum is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has one son, three daughters, and three grandchildren. She likes to watch the news and TVv programs.
One year ago, Yum developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurred vision, pain, itching, tearing and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Yum learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On May 10, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
She says, “I hope I can see everything clearly so I can learn about Buddha and do my work at home.”
