San is an elderly rice farmer from Cambodia. Her husband passed away during the Khmer Rouge regime and she lives with her one daughter, who is also a farmer. Now that San is older, she does not work at the rice field anymore, and likes to spend her time listening monks preaching on the radio.
Two years ago, San developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. Her condition has become significantly worse in the last two months and is impacting her ability to her day-to-day tasks.
When San learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours with her daughter seeking treatment. On January 7th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
San shared, “I want to help my daughter to take care of my grandchildren, do housework, and can go anywhere that I want to go. Thank you for your support for my surgery.”
