Chou is a grocer from Cambodia. She has three sons, six daughters, and 16 grandchildren. She likes to watch Chinese dramas on TV.
Two years ago, Chou developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, burning, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chou learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one hour seeking treatment. On December 12, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 my eye surgery is successful so I can recognize my grandchildren’s faces.”
