Pich is a retired rice farmer, living in Kompong Cham province in Cambodia. She is 58 years old and has two sons, two daughters, and six grandchildren. She lives with her husband, who is also a retired rice farmer, and her youngest daughter, who works at a garment factory.
About one year ago, Pich developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She experiences discomfort and her impaired vision makes her reluctant to go out on her own.
Pich sought treatment from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre. On April 27th, doctors will perform phacoemulsification cataract surgery and implant an intraocular lens in her left eye. Now, Pich needs your help to fund this $253 procedure.
Pich shared: “I hope I can see again after surgery. I would like to help my daughter cook, and go to the pagoda by myself.”
