Sok Mouy is a 70-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. Sok Mouy is married and has three daughters, two sons, and seven grandchildren. She likes to listen to the monks pray on the radio.
Six years ago, Sok Mouy developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, cloudy lens, irritation, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sok Mouy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled with her sister by tuk tuk seeking treatment. On October 13th, doctors will perform phacoemulsification 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 $229 procedure.
Sok Mouy shared, “I hope I can see everything after my surgery well so I can do work at home, take care of my grandchildren, and get around easily by myself.”
