Huon is a 73-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has seven daughters, three sons, and fifteen grandchildren. Her husband passed away many years ago. She enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
Five months ago, Huon developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her vision loss. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Huon learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On April 29th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
“I hope that I will see everything better so I can do my housework well and help take care my grandchildren,” Huon said.
