Sreng underwent cataract surgery to improve her vision.
Our medical partner shared that Sreng’s surgery went well! Although she was nervous about traveling so far from her village, the staff at Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) put her at ease. The procedure went well, and she returned home the following day with eye drops to continue her healing. Sreng is relieved her vision has improved and that she can go outside again and be independent as a result.
Sreng shared, “I am happy I can see well again. I can do housework and help my son and grandchildren. Thank you to everyone who helps Cambodians like me to see and have a better life.”

Sreng is a 70-year-old mother and grandmother. Sadly, Sreng’s husband died during the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia. She has one son, who works as a farmer, and two grandchildren. In her free time, she enjoys listening to the monks pray.
Two years ago, Sreng developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sreng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On October 21st, 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.
Sreng shared, “I hope my eye can see well again so I can visit the pagoda by myself and get around easily.”
