Ret is a 68-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has one brother and one sister. Ret enjoys listening to the news and the monks pray on the radio. She also likes watching Khmer dramas on TV.
Two years ago, Ret developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her vision loss. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ret learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 28th, doctors will perform a small incision 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.
“I hope that my aunt’s eye will recover well so she can return to rice field, plant crops, as well as join ceremonies at the pagoda again,” Ret’s niece said.
