Yorn is a 69-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has four children, three grandchildren, and enjoys watching Khmer movies on television and visiting the Pagoda in her free time.
Four months ago, Yorn developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Yorn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On September 9th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
“I hope that after my operation I will be able to see clearly and can take care of my grandchildren.”
