Lach is a 75-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has six children, eight grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
One year ago, Lach developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Lach learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On October 10, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
Lach said, “I hope that I will be able to see clearly so I can visit the pagoda and recognize my relative’s faces again.”
