Sok is a 63-year-old mother of five from Cambodia. She has three daughters and two sons, and enjoys watching the news on television in her spare time.
One year ago, Sok developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, and irritation. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sok learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for half an hour seeking treatment. On July 10, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
She says, “I hope that I will be able to see clearly and recognize others, as well as go anywhere outside all on my own.”
