Sabay is a 58-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. In her free time she likes to listen to the monks pray on the radio, attend ceremonies at the Pagoda, and take care of her grandchildren.
Two year ago, Sabay developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sabay learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On October 07, 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.
Sabay said, “I hope that after surgery I can go to the pagoda on my own and can return to planting rice.”
