Heang is a 68-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has four children, eleven grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the radio in her spare time.
One year ago, Heang developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Heang learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for six hours seeking treatment. 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 $211 procedure.
“I hope that my mother will be able to see clearly so she can go about her work and be able to do things by herself again.” -Heang’s Daughter
