Reth is a grandmother from Cambodia. She has four daughters, four sons, and twenty-two grandchildren. She is a rice farmer. She likes to learn about Buddhism and watch Thai films in her free time.
Two years ago, Reth developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, photophobia, tearing, headache, and pain. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Reth learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On September 3, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 hope that I can see everything clearly after surgery. I want to do my work and earn money for my family and be able to go anywhere outside on my own.”
