Lim is a 73-year-old rice farmer in Cambodia. She has three daughters, four sons and 30 grandchildren. In her free time, she enjoys going to the pagoda, participating in ceremonies, and listening to the monk’s prayers.
Five years ago, Lim developed a cataract in her right eye eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going outside.
When Lim learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On May 6th, doctors will perform phacoemulsification and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Lim’s husband says, “I saw my wife having eye pain, so I worry about her and I want to her to see better.”
