Chea is a 57-year-old food seller from Cambodia. He has three children, and enjoys chatting with his friends and watching Khmer boxing on television.
One year ago, Chea developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chea learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On November 6th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
Chea said, “I hope that I will be able to see clearly again so I can go outside on my own and cook food again”
