Ray is a grandmother from Cambodia. She has five daughters, two sons, and 20 grandchildren. She is a rice farmer. She likes to listen to the monks pray on the radio.
Three months ago, Ray developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her cloudy vision and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ray learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On October 15, doctors will perform a small incision 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 want to see my grandchildren’s faces and be able to go outside independently.”
