about Cheng's recovery.

March 11, 2019

Cheng is a 75-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She likes to take care of her 12 grandchildren and enjoys going to the pagoda in her free time.

Two years ago, Cheng developed entropion of the eyelids. This means that she has burred vision and irritation in her eyes. She often has pain and difficulty seeing properly.

Cheng traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On April 3, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform a corrective procedure to repair her eyelids. Now, Cheng needs help to raise $212 to fund this procedure.

She says, “I hope that after surgery I will be able to go outside the house by myself and continue going to the pagoda.”
