Lay is a 73-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has five children, ten grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio and planting vegetables nearby the house.
One year ago, Lay developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision, tearing, and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Lay learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On October 04, doctors will perform a small incision 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 $211 procedure.
Lay said, “I hope that after surgery I can see clearly and help take care of the housework and return to planting rice at the farm.”
