Sarun is a 63-year-old mother of four from Cambodia, with one son and three daughters. Sarun is a farmer and lives with her children since her husband passed away in a traffic accident 20 years ago.
One year ago, Sarun developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has increasing difficulty doing the day-to-day things of her life.
When Sarun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled with her sister seeking treatment. On January 5th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $229 procedure.
Sarun said, “I hope after surgery I can go outside easily and see clearly so I can help my daughter around the house and take care of my grandchildren.”
