Kheav is an 85-year old traditional Khmer healer from Cambodia. She enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio and spending time with her family.
One year ago, Kheav developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Kheav learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. Doctors will perform a small incision 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.
Kheav shared, “I hope that I will be able to see clearly so I can recognize my relatives’ faces and can go outside easily again.”
