Sombath is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two sons, three daughters, and 23 grandchildren. She likes visiting the local pagoda in her free time.
Three months ago, Sombath developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her cloudy vision and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sombath learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On November 12, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
She says, “I look forward to going to the pagoda and spending time with my family.”
