Maley is a 41-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. She lives with her husband and four children, all of whom are students. She and her husband sometimes work together during the day. When she is off-duty, she likes to watch television, particularly Khmer dramas.
Three weeks ago, Maley developed a traumatic cataract in her left eye, causing her headache and vision loss that prevents her from working.
When Maley learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On June 1st, 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.
Maley said, “I hope my eye surgery is successful, I will go right back home and see my children because they were worried about me.”
Her husband added, “I will be very happy once my wife is home with good vision. We can both work again and support our family.”
