Hun is a 65-year-old mother of eight from Cambodia. She has ten grandchildren, and enjoys watching Khmer dramas on television.
Six months ago, Hun developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Hun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On January 13th, 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. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
“I hope that I can see more clearly so I can help plant rice and other crops, and take care of the housework,” she said.
