Nak is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two sons, three daughters, and seven grandchildren. She likes to watch TV in her free time.
Three years ago, Nak developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, irritation, burning, photophobia, and clouded lenses. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Nak learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On December 11, 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.
He says, “I hope my eye surgery is successful so I can continue my work at the farm, feed the cows and chickens, and I can go outside by myself easily.”
