Sophal is a vendor from Cambodia. She has two daughters, five sons, and eight grandchildren. She enjoys listening to monks pray on the radio and watching thai films.
Six months ago, Sophal developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, headaches, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sophal learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On August 8, 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 I can see everything clearly. I hope to do my work soon and go to the pagoda by myself again to learn about Buddha.”
