December 19, 2019

Pov is a 66-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has six children, fifteen grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio in her spare time.

Three months ago, Pov developed entropion of the eyelids. This means that her eyelids are turned inwards, which causes her eyelashes to rub against her eyes. It is difficult for her to see and she often has pain, tearing, and blurry vision.

Pov traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On December 19th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform a corrective procedure to repair her eyelids. Now, Pov needs help to raise $212 to fund this procedure.

“I hope that the irritation and tearing will go away and I will be able to see better and go outside on my own again,” shared Pov.
