Sim is a 64-year-old mother and grandmother from Cambodia. She likes to listen to monks pray on the radio and go to the pagoda to help cook food for the monks.
Three years ago, Sim developed cataracts in both eyes, causing her blurred vision, tearing, cloudy lenses, and extreme sensitivity to light. It is difficult for her to see things clearly, recognize faces, do any type of work, and go anywhere outside by herself.
Sim learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), on the radio. She traveled for four hours with her sister-in-law to reach CSC for treatment. On March 28, surgeons will perform small incision cataract surgery and intraocular lens implantation in both eyes. After the procedures, Sim will be able to see clearly again. CSC is requesting $292 to fund her surgery.
