Yorn is a 73-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has three daughters, three sons, and eighteen grandchildren. She enjoys listening to monks pray on the radio.
One month ago, Yorn developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her vision loss. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Yorn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 28th, 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 $229 procedure.
“I hope to see everything clearly again, to recognize faces of all my relatives, and go outside, especially I can have rice and do something on my own,” Yorn said.
