Chhai Leang is a 64-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has six children, five grandchildren, and enjoys going to the pagoda and listening to the monks pray on the radio.
Chhai Leang has strabismus in her left eye. Strabismus is a misalignment of the eye caused by injury or dysfunction in the associated nerves and muscles. It is difficult for her to recognize objects and walk in the rice fields.
Chhai Leang traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On May 1, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform a corrective procedure to align her eyes. Now, Chhai Leang needs help to raise $292 to fund this procedure.
She says, “I hope that I am able to see clearly so I can go back to my work in the rice farm and be able to walk comfortably on my own.”
