Pin is a 61-year-old mother of five from Cambodia. She has six grandchildren, and in her free time she enjoys watching the news and Khmer dramas on television, and listening to the monks pray on the radio.
Six months ago, Pin developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her vision loss. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Pin learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On August 5, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $211 procedure.
She says, “I hope I am able to see clearly again so I can go anywhere outside on my own, and easily recognize people and take care of my children.”
