Sean is a grandmother of thirteen from Cambodia. She is a rice farmer. She has three daughters, three sons, and thirteen grandchildren. She likes to listen to monks pray on the radio.
One year ago, Sean developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision, itching, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sean learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 30, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
She says, “I hope my vision is restored so I can lead an independent life and keep learning about Buddha.”
