Sarey is a 68-year-old teacher from Cambodia. She has one son, two grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
One month ago, Sarey developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sarey learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On August 5, 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 $398 procedure.
She says, “I hope that after surgery I will be able to recognize people’s faces and can cook for my family again.”
