Chhun Eng is an 82-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has four children, ten grandchildren, and enjoy listening to the monks pray on the radio and visiting the pagoda in her free time.
One year ago, Chhun Eng developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, irritation, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chhun Eng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On September 4, 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 see clearly again so I can join the ceremonies at the pagoda.”
