Kroy is a 75-year-old farmer. He has one son, two daughters, and eight grandchildren. Kroy shared that his wife passed away a while ago, and he now lives with his youngest daughter, who is also a farmer. When he has free time, Kroy likes to visit his relatives.
Around five years ago, Kroy developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision. As a result, he has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so he cannot go places independently.
When Kroy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for eight hours seeking treatment. On February 22nd, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $229 to fund this procedure.
Kroy said, “After surgery, I hope I can go around by myself well and plant some vegetables outside my house.”
