Leang is a 63-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has five children, six grandchildren, and enjoys watching Khmer dramas on television in her free time.
Four months ago, Leang developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Leang learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On September 12th, doctors will perform left and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
“I hope that after my surgery, I will be able to help my husband plant rice, and can cook for my family and help around the house.”
