Yeth is a 65-year-old woman from Cambodia. She is married and has four sons, three daughters, and over ten grandchildren. In her free time, she likes to go to the pagoda to listen to monks pray and join ceremonies.
About one year ago, Yeth developed a cataract in each eye, causing blurred vision and tearing. Since then, it has been difficult for her to see things clearly and work.
Fortunately, she learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). Yeth and her son traveled for three hours to reach CSC for treatment.
Now, CSC is requesting $292 to fund a small-incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant for each eye. She is scheduled to receive the surgery on February 14. Successful completion of this procedure will restore clear vision in both of Yeth’s eyes.
