Chheun is a 66-year-old tailor from Cambodia. She has three sons and three daughters, and she relaxes by watching Indian dramas on television.
One year ago, Chheun developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chheun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On February 27th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract 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 $425 procedure.
“I hope that I will be able to help look after my grandchildren again and can continue my job as a tailor,” Chheun shared.
