Eang received surgery to correct her cataracts so she can see.

Eang’s surgery was a success!

“She looks forward to returning to work on the rice farm now that it will be more easy. And she is so happy that she will be able to go anywhere on her own without assistance - like visiting the pagoda and relatives in the village,” explains her doctor at Children’s Surgical Centre.

Meet Eang, a 56-year-old woman from Cambodia! “Eang likes to listen to the radio and the monks praying in her free time,” our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) tells us.

Eang has mature cataracts in both of her eyes, which are impairing her vision. She needs two surgeries to restore her sight.

“Eang has difficulty working on the rice farm,” CSC explains, “and because she lives alone, this makes it hard for her to support herself.” Eang “is sad that she cannot do things for herself as she used to.”

We can help provide Eang treatment for only $150 to improve her eyesight and prevent blindness! Once Eang receives surgery, she looks forward to visiting the pagoda on her own!
