Vorn is a 68-year-old mother of two from Cambodia. She has one son and one daughter, and enjoys going for walks along the river in her free time.
One month ago, Vorn developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision and irritation. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Vorn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for five and a half hours seeking treatment. On July 8, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $211 procedure.
She says, “I hope that after my surgery I am able to cook and help take care of the house and my grandchild.”
