“I like to visit the pagoda and listen to the monks pray,” says Yorng. Meet Yorng, a loving mother of eight and grandmother to seven. Yorng is 77-years-old lives in Cambodia with her family.
“Yorng cannot see anything clearly because of the mature cataract in her right eye,” our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), tells us. Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in the world and are blurring her vision, making it difficult for her to do the things she loves.
CSC explains, “She has a hard time cooking and caring for her family and home. Yorng is sad that she cannot go anywhere on her own.”
For $150, Yorng will receive cataract surgery and regain her ability to see clearly. Let’s help Yorng regain her sight so that she can return to life as normal!
