Sokea is a 45-year-old fisherman and rice farmer from Cambodia. She has one son, two daughters, and one grandchild. Her favorite activities include watching Khmer and Thai dramas on television.
One month ago, Sokea developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sokea learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 10th, 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 I will be able to see more clearly and can go outside again and plant rice,” she shared.
