Korn is a 74-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has eleven grandchildren and enjoys listening to the monks on the radio.
One year ago, Korn developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision, tearing, and cloudy vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Korn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 13, 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 see everything clearly and can recognize faces and go back to my work.”
