Chas is a 76-year-old farmer from Cambodia. She has four daughters, two sons, and ten grandchildren. Chas lives with her daughter, who sells pottery. In her free time, Chas enjoys going to the mosque with her friend.
Two years ago, Chas developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, photophobia, tearing, and itchiness. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chas learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours with her daughter seeking treatment. On November 16th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and place 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.
Chas shared, “I hope I can see well and go to the mosque by myself once my procedure has been completed.”
