Yin is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has three sons, four daughters, and fifteen grandchildren. She likes to listen to monks pray on the radio and visit her local pagoda.
Three years ago, Yin developed a cataract in each eye, causing her pain and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Yin learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On December 5, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
She says, “I hope to take care of my grandchildren and go for walks after the operation.”
