Mea is a 54-year-old farmer from Cambodia. He has three children and two grandchildren, and likes to listen to the news on the radio in his free time.
One year ago, Mea developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him vision loss. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Mea learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 6, 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.
He says, “I hope that I am able to see clearly again, and that I can go back to my work on the farm.”
