Srey Ka is a nine-year-old, third grade student. She lives with her parents and her two siblings. Her parents are construction workers. Srey Ka enjoys writing at school, especially creating stories about other students. Outside of school, she likes to play sports with her friends.
One month ago, due to a traumatic injury, Srey Ka developed a cataract in her left eye, causing blurry vision and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Srey Ka’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for two hours with her mother to seek treatment. On June 15th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, Srey Ka will be able to see clearly. Now, her family needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Srey Ka wishes for recovery: “I hope I can easily play sports with my friends again, and see my teacher easily in school.”
