Orn is a 49-year-old homemaker. She and her husband are the parents of one son and three daughters in Kampong Cham province. Her husband makes and fixes sofas, her older children work at a garment factory, and her youngest son is a student.
About six months ago, Orn developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision, pain, and tearing. When Orn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled across the country for six and a half hours seeking treatment. On December 9th, doctors will perform small incision cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $253 procedure.
Orn said: “I hope after surgery I can see clearly. I want to recognize the faces of my family and go anywhere outside by myself. I want to be able to help my husband with his work.”
