Chea is an 87-year-old grandmother from Cambodia. She has eight children, fifty grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio in her spare time.
Three years ago, Chea developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chea learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On September 10th, 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.
“I hope that I am able to see clearly so I can recognize my relatives' faces and can return to the pagoda to attend the ceremonies.”
