Sa Morn is a rice farmer and a mother to one daughter and six sons. Currently, she lives with her two sons and husband, who are all farmers. Now that she and her husband are older, they cannot go to the rice field anymore to farm. She spends her days at home caring for her grandchildren, and also enjoys listening monks preaching on the radio.
One year ago, Sa Morn developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her photophobia, itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sa Morn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and half hours with one of her sons seeking treatment. On January 7th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Sa Morn shared, “I hope after surgery I can see clearly. I want to help my children to plant crops and rice, cook and do housework, and help take care of my grandchildren.”
