Yat is a 67-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has seven children, fifteen grandchildren, and enjoys doing the housework in her free time.
Two months ago, Yat developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Yat learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On October 04, 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.
Yat said, “ hope that after my surgery I will be able to see clearly and can help take care of my grandchildren.”
