Saray is a 55-year-old mother of four and grandmother of two. She manages a small mobile coffee shop and lives with her husband who is a construction laborer and their youngest daughter who is a garment worker in Kampong Speu province. At home, Saray likes to listen to the news and comedy shows.
Two years ago, Saray developed a cataract in her right eye, leading her to develop blurry vision, photophobia, and tearing. She has trouble steering her mobile coffee shop and is afraid to drive it on busy roads.
When Saray learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On January 24th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery, and implant an intraocular lens in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Saray needs help raising $253 to fund her procedure.
Saray shared: “I hope after surgery I can see better, go outside, and drive my motorbike to continue my work as a coffee seller.”
