Han is a 69-year-old retired teacher from Cambodia. She has five children, nine grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio and visiting the pagoda in her free time.
Two years ago, Han developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Han learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for five hours seeking treatment. On September 10th, 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 $211 procedure.
“I hope that I am able to see again so I can help take care of my grandchildren, plant some vegetables nearby the house, and visit the pagoda.”
