Hak is a 16-month-old girl from Cambodia. She is an only child. She likes to play with toys at home.
Ten months ago, Hak developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision and irritation. She has difficulty seeing things clearly.
When Hak’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, they traveled for one hour seeking treatment. On July 11, doctors will perform a lensectomy and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, her family needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
Her mother says, “I worry about my daughter’s vision. I worry that she is blind. I hope surgery can fix this.”
