Sarun is a 64-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has five children, ten grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio and joining in ceremonies at the local pagoda.
Two years ago, Sarun developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sarun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for five hours seeking treatment. On January 13th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $425 procedure.
“I hope that I will be able to see clearly so I can recognize my relatives’ faces and go outside easily again,” she hoped.
