Hol is a rice farmer from Cambodia. He has three sons, three daughters, and twenty grandchildren. He enjoys going to the local pagoda and praying with the monks.
One year ago, Hol developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurred vision and tearing. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Hol learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for five hours seeking treatment. On March 14, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
He says, “When I can see clearly again, I want to go my local pagoda.”
