Mao is a grandmother of thirty from Cambodia. She has seven sons, three daughters, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio in her free time.
One year ago, Mao developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Mao learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On August 5, 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 $211 procedure.
She says, “I hope that I will be able to return to the pagoda and attend the ceremony, and be able to recognize my relatives’ faces.”
