Sas is a 67-year-old cashew farmer with one daughter, two sons, and one grandchild. Sas and her husband live with their eldest son who is also a cashew farmer. In her free time, Sas enjoys visiting the mosque and watching Khmer and Thai dramas on TV.
Six years ago, Sas developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her impaired vision and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sas learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours with her son seeking treatment. On May 18th, doctors will perform a small incision 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 $229 procedure.
Sas shared, “I hope I can see better so I can cook well and take care of myself and my husband. I also want to plant some vegetables and raise cows and chickens.”
