Orn is a 49-year-old homemaker. She and her husband are the parents of one son and three daughters in Kampong Cham province. Her husband makes and fixes sofas, her older children work at a garment factory, and her youngest son is a student.
About six months ago, Orn developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision, pain, and tearing. When Orn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled across the country for six and a half hours seeking treatment. On December 9th, doctors will perform 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.
Orn said: “I hope after surgery I can see clearly. I want to recognize the faces of my family and go anywhere outside by myself. I want to be able to help my husband with his work.”

Orn underwent cataract surgery in her left eye.
Orn was happy to take the advice of a neighbor in her village for surgery and was overjoyed when she opened her eye with improved vision. She rested for a few days at home and instilled eye drops eight times daily to aid in healing. Her eyesight will slowly improve over the next few weeks. Orn can now see clearly the faces of her family and feels more confident in her daily activities. Her life will be better, and she looks forward to being able to see to cook for her family.
Orn said: “I want to say thank you to everyone for the free surgery and helping me get back to help my family.”
