Lim is from Cambodia and sells Khmer donuts at the market for her family’s livelihood. She has three daughters, one son, and one grandchild. Lim likes to listen to the news on the radio.
Five months ago, Lim developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Lim learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one hour and a half by tuk tuk seeking treatment. On April 1st, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cararact 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 clearly again, and go back to earning income for my family by selling donuts,” Lim said.
