Nat is a 62-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has five sons, two daughters, and five grandchildren. In her free time, she enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
Five months ago, Nat developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Nat learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On December 16th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
“I hope I am able to see more clearly so I can recognize my relatives’ faces and go outside on my own again,” Nat said.
