Sor is a 56-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. Sor has two sons, one daughter, and one grandchild. She lives with her husband who is also a rice farmer. She shared that she enjoys listening to the news on the radio and monks praying on the radio or at the pagoda in her village.
Two weeks ago, the retina of Sor’s left eye detached, causing her blurred vision and flashes of bright light in her eye. She now has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sor learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours with her sister seeking treatment. On September 24th, eye surgeons will perform a retinal detachment repair procedure in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $648 procedure.
Sor said, “I hope my eye surgery is successful so I can return to my planting and housework and don’t have to worry about losing vision in my eye.”
