Pov is a 55-year-old laborer from Cambodia. He is married and has three sons, four daughters, and four grandchildren. Pov lives with his wife, who is also a laborer. He enjoys spending time with his children and listening to the news.
Three years ago, Pov developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him sensitivity to light, itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Pov learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On June 21st, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Pov shared, “I hope after surgery my eye can see clearly so I can work well and get around easily outside by myself.”
