Yeu is a 67-year-old retired rice farmer. She is married and has three sons, three daughters, and fifteen grandchildren. Yeu lives with her youngest daughter and her husband, who are also rice farmers. Yeu said that her favorite hobbies are cooking for her grandchildren and listening to monks pray on the radio.
Six months ago, Yeu developed a cataract in her right eye, causing blurry vision and headaches. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking.
When Yeu learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On June 12th, Yeu will receive cataract surgery at CSC’s care center. During this procedure, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and implant an intraocular lens in her right eye. After recovery, Yeu will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $253 procedure.
Yeu shared, “I hope that surgery will make my eye better and stop the pain. I want to be able to do housework and go to the pagoda to pray.”
