Seang Heng is a 63-year-old vegetable farmer who is married and has one son, two daughters, and five grandchildren. Seang Heng’s husband also works as a farmer. In her free time, Seang Heng likes to listen to the monks pray on the radio.
Three years ago, Seang Heng developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her irritation and blurry vision. As a result, she has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so she cannot go places independently.
When Seang Heng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 7th, 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.
Seang Heng shared, “I hope my eye can see well again so I can keep farming.”
