Da is a 43-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. She and her husband have four children and three grandchildren. They work together on construction sites. She enjoys watching Thai dramas on TV with her kids, and often cooks for her whole family.
One year ago, Da developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Da learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On July 6th, 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 $229 procedure.
Da shared, “I know my family is worried about my vision and they want to help me, but I hope this surgery can help me be independent and recognize where I am and see my grandchildren.”
