Hin is a rice farmer from Cambodia. He has one son, four daughters, and eight grandchildren. He likes to listen to monks pray on the radio.
Two years ago, Hin developed a cataract in each eye, causing him tearing, itchiness, cloudy lens, and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Hin learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for six hours seeking treatment. On December 4, 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, “I hope my eye surgery is successful so I can continue my work at the farm and go outside by myself.”
