Vannak is a rice farmer with four daughters. She lives with her eldest daughter, who is a grocery seller.
Three years ago, Vannak developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Vannak learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours with her daughter seeking treatment. On January 6th, 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 more clearly and walk around outside confidently. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Vannak shared, “I want to see well again so I can help my daughter take care of her children and be able to visit the pagoda.”
