Navy is a 71 year old grandmother from Cambodia. She has one daughter, two grandchildren, and enjoys reading books in her free time.
One year ago, Navy developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurring vision and irritation. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Navy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 10, 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 $211 procedure.
She says, “I hope that I will be able to see clearly and can go anywhere I want, such as to the pagoda, by myself.”
