Nai is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two sons and nine grandchildren. She likes to listen to monks pray on the radio.
Three years ago, Nai developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, irritation, itchiness, photophobia, and clouded lenses. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Nai learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On October 17, doctors will perform a small incision 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 to return to work at the farm and to spend more time with my family.”
