Kry is a 65-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has seven grandchildren and, in her free time, enjoys listening to the news and monks pray on the radio.
One month ago, Kry developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, irritation, and headaches. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Kry learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On April 22, doctors will perform an extra-capsular cataract extraction 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 after my surgery, I will be able to see more clearly and no longer have any pain. I hope to be able to continue taking care of my grandchildren and helping with the cooking.”
