Yeat is a 65-year-old grandmother of ten from Cambodia. She has four daughters, one son, and enjoys visiting the pagoda in her spare time.
Three months ago, Yeat developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision, irritation, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Yeat learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On August 6, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
She says, “I hope that I will be able to see more clearly than before, and return to the pagoda and attend the ceremonies.”
