Mom is a 70-years-old loving grandmother from Cambodia. She has one son, six daughters, and 20 beautiful grandchildren. Her husband unfortunately passed away, so she now lives with her eldest daughter, who is a tailor. Mom enjoys going to the mosque.
Two years ago, Mom developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her to experience light sensitivity, eye tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking. Because of this, she is not able to go places on her own.
When Mom learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On July 18th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $253 procedure.
Mom says, “I hope I can see things clearly again so I can travel easily on my own.”
