Nah is a 73-year-old retired rice farmer from Cambodia. She has one daughter, three sons, and 16 grandchildren. She and her husband live with their eldest daughter, who is a grocery seller. Nah enjoys spending her time at the mosque.
Six years ago, Nah developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her to experience itchiness, eye tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so she is not able to go places on her own.
When Nah learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On July 18th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $253 procedure.
Nah says, “I hope after surgery my eye can see clearly so I can take care of myself and my husband well.”
