Fiyas is a 54-year-old fisherman from Cambodia. She has four daughters and seven grandchildren, and enjoys going to the temple in her free time.
Two months ago, Fiyas developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, irritation, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Fiyas learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 4, doctors will perform a small incision cataract 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 that after my surgery, I am able to go outside by myself and help take care of my grandchildren.”
