Vong is a 58-year-old woman with two daughters and one son. Vong’s husband works as a motor taxi driver. In her free time, Vong enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
Five years ago, Vong 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 Vong learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled there seeking treatment. On July 5th, 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.
Vong shared, “I hope after surgery my eye can see well so I can get around and take care of myself.”
