San is a retired coffee seller from Cambodia. Her husband passed away a few years ago, and San shared that she misses him dearly. San has four sons, one daughter, and fifteen grandchildren. Her favorite pastimes include watching TV and listening to the monks pray on her radio.
About seven months ago, San developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her to experience difficulty recognizing people and objects. Due to the deterioration in her vision, she is unable to do things she used to do and is feeling depressed. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so she cannot go places independently.
When San learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled an hour seeking treatment. On June 5th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $253 to fund this procedure. San contributed $100 to her care.
She said: “I hope that, after the surgery, my eyes will improve and I will be able to see better. I want to visit my relatives and enjoy my life.”
