Ruos is a 72-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has three children, eight grandchildren, and enjoys visiting the pagoda in her free time.
Six months ago, Ruos developed a cataract in each eye, causing her irritation, itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ruos learned about our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On September 2nd, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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.
"I hope that I will be able to cook, go outside, and visit the pagoda again on my own."
