Chheng Nang is 65 years old. She is married and has three sons, three daughters, and nine grandchildren. She likes to go to the pagoda to listen to monks pray, chat with neighbors, and look after her grandchildren.
Two years ago, Chheng Nang developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision, tearing, and headaches. It is difficult for her to see things clearly, do any work, and go anywhere on her own. Chheng Nang is worried about going blind.
Chheng Nang heard about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), from her neighbor. She traveled for three hours with her daughter-in-law to reach CSC for treatment. On January 19, doctors will perform an extracapsular cataract extraction and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. CSC is requesting $292 to fund this procedure.
After surgery, Chheng Nang will be able to see clearly again.
