Many is a 67-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two daughters, three grandchildren, and enjoys watching Khmer dramas on television.
One year ago, Many developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Many learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one hour seeking treatment. On August 1, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 that after my operation I will be able to recognize things and return to planting my crops.”
