Yean is a 74-year-old farmer from Cambodia. She has three sons, one daughter, and many grandchildren. She lives with her husband and their daughter, who is also a rice farmer. Now, Yean and her husband stay at home to take care of their grandchildren.
Two years ago, Yean developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her photophobia, itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Yean learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled with her daughter seeking treatment. On January 6th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Yean shared, “At my age I just want to be able to take care of myself, my husband, and my grandchildren, so I need to see clearly. Thank you for your support.”
