En is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has one daughter, four sons, and twenty grandchildren. She likes to go to the local pagoda and listen to monks pray on the radio.
Two years ago, En developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her photophobia and blurred vision and irritation. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When En learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 12, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
She says, “I want to go to the pagoda, participate in ceremonies and most of all, I want to be able to recognize my relatives well.”
