Rorn is a 75-year-old widow from Cambodia. She lives with her four sons and nine grandchildren. At home she usually cooks food, cleans the house, and does other work. In her free time she enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
One year ago, Rorn developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Rorn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 27th, doctors will perform a small incision 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 $229 procedure.
“I hope that I can see everything better so I can go outside to join the Buddhist ceremonies by myself. I also want to be able to cook some food for my grandchildren,” Rorn said.
