This smiling face belongs to Mot, a lovely 78-year-old woman. She lives in northern Cambodia with her family. In her spare time, Mot enjoys staying up to date with current events by listening to the radio.

About a year ago Mot began to lose her vision, and now she is partially blind. After traveling eight long hours to seek an evaluation, Mot was diagnosed with a hyper-mature cataract in both eyes. This condition occurs when the lens of the eye becomes either flattened and dry, or liquid and soft. Mot dislikes that she cannot take care of herself or her family, and sometime experiences pain.

For $100, Watsi donors can help Mot regain her vision and health. Donations will cover cataract surgery which will restore Mot’s eyesight and reduce her pain.

Asbel

Asbel is a young farmer and the firstborn in a family of six. Asbel lives with his mother and siblings since their father passed away. The 28-year-old does farming to earn a living and sometimes is able to do other casual work in people’s farms. His siblings are young and his mother has no income-generating activity to support the family. He was forced to drop out of high school due to lack of funds to support his education. On arrival at the hospital, Asbel was checked by the doctors who also did an x-ray. This confirmed that he had sustained a metatarsal fracture with a dislocation on his right lower limb. Due to his condition, Asbel was taken to the operating theater for an urgent washout procedure to clean out his wound and then admitted to the hospital for pain management. He was also told that he would need surgery to fix the fractured bones. The condition has caused Asbel pain, swelling, and an open wound after a prick by a sharp object on his right foot while working on the farm. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On November 24th, Asbel will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. He will be able to go back to farming and continue supporting his family. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $941 to fund this procedure. Asbel says, “My hope is to get treated so that I can resume all my daily duties and provide for my family and my siblings.”
