Savy is 50-year-old rice and mango farmer. She’s married and has three daughters. Her children are students and her husband is a farmer too. When she is not farming or taking her produce to the market, she likes to watch Khmer dramas on TV.
Three months ago, Savy developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, photophobia, and tearing. She cannot see in low light or bright light and has difficulty walking outside by herself.
When Savy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On January 5th, doctors will perform phacoemulsification cataract surgery and will place an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Savy said, “I hope after surgery my eye can see well. I can go out easily and go to plant rice and can drive my motorbike well.”
