Sor is an 81-year-old grandmother from Cambodia. She has three children, ten grandchildren, and enjoys visiting the pagoda and listening to the monks pray on the radio in her spare time.
One year ago, Sor developed a cataract in each eye, causing her vision loss. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sor learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On December 11th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
“I hope that I will be able to see more clearly so I can go outside again and recognize things and return to the pagoda,” Sor shared.
