Lim is a 72-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has seven children and thirty grandchildren, and she enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio in her free time.
One year ago, Lim developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Lim learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 18, 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 return to the pagoda and rejoin in the ceremonies, as well as take care of my grandchildren.”
