Hon is a 75-year-old Khmer noodle seller from Cambodia with six daughters and 15 grandchildren. She lives with her daughter as her husband passed away 20 years ago. She shared with us that she mostly enjoys listening to the monks pray.
Seven years ago, Hon developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurred vision, irritation, and cloudy lens. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Hon learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled there with her daughter hoping for treatment. On September 23rd, doctors will perform phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Hon said, “I hope after surgery I can see everything clearer than now so I can travel to the pagoda on my own.”
