San is a 64-year-old Monk from Cambodia. He has eight children, six grandchildren, and enjoys reading Buddhist text in his free time.
Six months ago, San developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurry and cloudy vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When San learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On August 12, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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, “I hope that I will be able to see better and can recognize people, and will be able to go outside and read again.”
