Hout is a loving mom and grandmother. She has one son, two daughters, and twenty grandchildren. She lives with her youngest daughter, who works in construction. At home, Hout cooks for the family and likes to listen to monks pray on the radio. She also enjoys visiting the pagoda with her family.
About three years ago, Hout developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision. As a result, she has difficulty at night with her vision and often sees halos around lights. She also cannot see objects clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking. Consequently, she cannot go places on her own.
When Hout learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for an hour seeking treatment. On September 29th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $253 to fund this procedure.
Hout said, “After surgery, I hope I can see better and help my daughter take care of my grandchildren and can go out by myself well.”
