Ky is a 65-year-old mother of five from Cambodia. She has five sons and enjoys looking after her eleven grandchildren when she has free time.
One year ago, Ky developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ky learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On February 3rd, 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.
“I hope that I will be able to help look after my grandchildren again,” Ky shared.
