28-year-old Rady is a mother of an eight-year-old daughter and a three-year-old son. She lives with her husband and children in Cambodia, where her husband works long hours in construction. Rady is a homemaker, who loves to cook for her family and to play with her children.
About two years ago, Rady developed a cataract in her right eye. As a result, Rady lives with discomfort and impaired vision, making it difficult for her to function as independently as she used to.
Rady traveled to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, for treatment. On February 2nd, doctors at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre will perform cataract surgery and implant an intraocular lens in Rady’s right eye. Now, she needs your help to fund this $253 procedure.
Rady said: “I hope after surgery I can teach my daughter reading and writing, and I want to grow mango and guava to sell to earn more money for my family.”
