Nhoem is a 71-year-old mother of seven from Cambodia. She has ten grandchildren, and in her free time she enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
One year ago, Nhoem developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her tearing and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Nhoem learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On August 5, doctors will perform a 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 $211 procedure.
She says, “I hope I can see more clearly so I can return to the pagoda and join the ceremonies, and also recognize my relatives’s faces.”
