Leap is a 60-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two sons and five daughters, and she enjoys playing and taking care of her ten grandchildren.
One year ago, Leap developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Leap learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 10th, 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 $229 procedure.
Leap said, “I hope that I can see better and recognize things and will be able to go outside and plant rice again.”
