Hoeun is a 77-year-old fish seller from Cambodia. She has five children, ten grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
Six months ago, Hoeun developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Hoeun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On January 15th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $425 procedure.
“I hope that I will be able to see better and can go outside and recognize things again,” she said.
