Somaly is a two-year-old girl from Cambodia. She has one older brother and two older sisters. She likes to play with dolls and play games.
Somaly was born with a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision and cloudy lenses. She has difficulty walking around independently.
When Somaly’s mother learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, they traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On December 22, doctors performed a lens aspiration in each eye to remove the cataract. After recovery, Somaly’s vision will improve. Now, her family needs help to fund this $292 procedure.
“I hope my daughter can see like other kids,” says Somaly’s mother, “so that I don’t have to worry about her eyes having any problems. I want her to be able to play with her siblings and friends, and I want her to go to school to study like other children.”
