Seng is a 68-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has one son, one daughter, and four grandchildren. She likes listening to monks pray on the radio, reading the Buddhist religious text, and doing housework at her free time.
Six months ago, Seng developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Seng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 29th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $229 procedure.
“I hope that my surgery will recover my vision well. I want to see better so I can read, travel, and see my grandchildren grow up,” Seng said.
