Noam is an 86-year-old grandmother of twenty from Cambodia. She has six children and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio in her free time.
One year ago, Noam developed a cataract in each eye, causing her vision loss. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Noam learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one hour seeking treatment. On July 11, doctors will perform a small incision cataract 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 after my surgery I will be able to recognize my relatives’ faces and can return to the pagoda.”
