Sen is a 62-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has four sons and two daughters, and when she is not working she enjoys looking after her seven grandchildren.
Five months ago, Sen developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sen learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On January 14th, 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 $425 procedure.
“I hope that I will be able to look after my grandchildren and plant some vegetables nearby the house,” Sen said.
