Raksmey is a kindergartener from Cambodia. She has one younger brother. She likes to do puzzles and drink green tea. She wants to be a teacher when she grows up.
Four months ago, Raksmey developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Raksmey learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On July 18, doctors will perform lens aspiration 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.
Her aunt says, “I am worried about her vision and how it affects her education. I hope she can return to school soon.”
