Sambath is a mother of six from Cambodia. She is married and has six daughters and 15 grandchildren. Sambath lives with her fourth child who is a grocery seller. Sambath shared that she enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
Four years ago, Sambath developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her photophobia, blurry vision, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sambath learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled there with her daughter seeking treatment. On June 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.
Sambath said, “I hope I can see clearly and recognize things well so I can help my daughter take care of her children and visit the pagoda on holy days.”
