Khum is a 59-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has six grandchildren and enjoys listening to the news on the radio.
Three months ago, Khum developed a cataract in each eye, causing her irritation and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Khum learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 4, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
She says, “I hope I can see better after my surgery so I can help my sister bake cakes for her business.”
