Sokorn is a 65-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has one daughter, and enjoys looking after her grandchild and visiting the pagoda in her spare time.
One year ago, Sokorn developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, photophobia, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sokorn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On January 6th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $425 procedure.
“I hope that I will be able to see clearly again so I can help take care of my grandchild,” Sokorn shared.
