Nhang is a 73-year-old woman from Cambodia. She has four children and ten grandchildren. Her husband died five years ago, and since then she has been living with two of her daughters, helping to keep the house in order and taking care of her grandchildren while her daughters farm. In her free time she talks to neighbors or listens to the radio.
Two years ago, Nhang developed entropion of the eyelids. This means that her eyelids turn inward, causing her eyelashes to scrape the surface of her eyes. This causes severe irritation and tearing.
Nhang traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On July 9th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform a corrective procedure to repair her eyelids. Now, Nhang needs help to raise $225 to fund this procedure.
Nhang’s daughter shared, “My mom loves to see my children and play with them and make them food, but since her eyes got bad she has a hard time doing these things. I hope she can get better quickly.”
