Hat is a 68-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. In her free time, she enjoys watching both Khmer and Thai dramas on television.
One year ago, Hat developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, irritation, burning, teary eyes, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Hat learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On February 18, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
She says, “I hope my eye surgery is successful so that I am able to see everything, recognize people’s faces, and help my family around the house.”
