Sophors is a 60-year-old woman. She has two sons, three daughters, and six grandchildren. Sophors is a retired cook and lives with her eldest daughter who is a mat weaver. She enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio and playing with her grandchildren.
Five years ago, Sophors developed a cataract in her right eye causing her sensitivity to light, itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sophors learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours with her daughter seeking treatment. On June 14th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly and now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Sophors shared, “I hope I can see better so I can recognize people’s faces and take care of my grandchildren well.”
