Hong is a 74-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two daughters, two grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the radio and looking after her family.
Five months ago, Hong developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Hong learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On January 3rd 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.
“I hope that after my surgery, I will be able to see again and can help take care of my grandchildren,” Hong shared.
