SaRet is a 64-year-old woman from Cambodia. She has six sons, twenty grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray in her free time.
Three years ago, SaRet developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, irritation, and itchiness. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When SaRet learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 18, doctors will perform a small incision cataract 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 that after my surgery, I will be able to take care of my grandchildren and help around the house with cooking.”
