Nheib is a 77-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has twelve grandchildren and enjoys watching television and listening to the monks pray in her spare time.
Two years ago, Nheib developed a cataract in each eye, causing her tearing, irritation, and cloudy vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Nheib learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 14, 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.
Her daughter says, “I hope that after her surgery, my mother will be able to see more clearly and be able to go outside on her own.”
