Sa Roeun is a 68-year-old woman from Cambodia. She is married with three sons, two daughters, and six grandchildren. She likes to listen to monks pray and look after her grandchildren.
Two years ago, Sa Roeun developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, working, and going anywhere outside.
When Sa Roeun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On November 30, doctors performed a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, Sa Roeun will be able to see clearly again. Now, she needs help to fund this $292 procedure.
“I hope that I can see more clearly,” she says, “so that I can recognize people and go places by myself without needing to bother others to come with me.”
