Chhay is a housewife from Cambodia. She is a widow. She lives with her sister. She likes to listen to monks pray on the radio.
Five months ago, Chhay developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision and headaches. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chhay learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On February 6, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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.
She says, “I hope I can help my sister to do housework and go to the pagoda easily.”
