Saphiya is a 58-year-old woman from Cambodia. She has five children, five grandchildren, and enjoys going to the pagoda and listening to the monks on the radio.
One year ago, Saphiya developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Saphiya learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for a half an hour seeking treatment. On February 11, doctors will perform 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 that I will be able to see better after my surgery and can easily go outside without any problems.”
