Seu is a 77-year-old nun from Cambodia. She has one nephew and two nieces. She has one sister and likes to spend time with her family. She also enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
One year ago, Seu developed a cataract in each eye, causing her partial blindness, tearing, and cloudy lenses. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Seu learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On February 6, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
Her niece says, “I am worried that her vision is declining. I hope surgery will help her see again.”
