Seng underwent eye surgery so she can see clearly again.
Seng and her daughter traveled to Children’s Surgical Centre and were able to return home the day after surgery. She will rest for several days, avoid rubbing her eye or using any water near her eye for a few more days. After she heals, she can be more independent and is eager to be able to go outside with fear of tripping or falling. She is feeling hopeful and that this surgery will enrich her life because she’ll see her grandchildren’s faces and enjoy them as they grow up.
Seng said: “I am so happy my vision will get better. I was sad to stay in the house and could not walk my grandchildren to school. Thank you for helping to make my life worthwhile again.”

Seng is a 75-year-old widow with two sons, three daughters, and ten grandchildren. They are all rice farmers, but Seng is now retired and stays at home to care for her grandchildren.
Four years ago, Seng developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision with frequent tearing. There are only traditional healers in her village, and she can no longer walk by herself due to poor balance.
When Seng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On December 14th, doctors will perform small incision cataract 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 $229 procedure.
“I like to play with my grandchildren and cannot see their faces now. I hope after my eye is fixed, I can recognize their faces clearly, go outside by myself, and visit the pagoda in my village.”
