Leap is a mother of six with ten grandchildren from Cambodia. She is a farmer who likes to watch Thai dramas.
One year ago, Leap developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision, burning, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Leap learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On January 21, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $398 procedure.
She says, “I hope that my eye surgery is successful and I can see everything more clearly now. This way I can help my family at the farm field more easily, and I can easily to do any work and walking outside by myself.”
