Leas is a food vendor from Cambodia. She has one daughter. She enjoys listening to social programs and monks pray on the radio.
Three years ago, Leas developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurred vision, tearing, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Leas learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for half an hour seeking treatment. On February 12, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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.
She says, “I hope my vision is clearer so I can easily do my work at home and take care of my husband.”
