From Cambodia, Kob is a 77-year-old woman married with two sons, two daughters, and over ten grandchildren. She enjoys visiting the pagoda to join in ceremonies and listen to the monks pray.
Two years ago, Kob developed a cataract in each of her eyes. The condition causes her blurred vision and constant tearing. So, she traveled over two hours with her daughter to reach Watsi’s medical partner, Children’s Surgical Center, to receive necessary treatment.
After a small incision cataract surgery and intraocular lens implant in each eye, Kob will be able to see clearly again. Surgeons at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Center will replace her clouded lenses with clear, artificial ones. After surgical intervention requiring $292 in funds, Kob’s eyes will no longer be irritated, and her vision will return.
Let’s support Kob with her medical needs, so that she may return home to see her grandchildren play and to visit the local pagoda.
