Yom is a seamstress from Cambodia. She has one daughter, one son, and three grandchildren. She likes to listen to the radio.
Three years ago, Yom developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, itchiness, irritation, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Yom learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On December 3, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 I can see clearly so I can return home and to work. I look forward to joining in on ceremonies at the temple.”
