Sok is a 64-year-old clothes seller from Cambodia. He has five children and eight grandchildren. His wife recently passed away, so he currently lives on his own. To make a living, Sok sells clothes at a local market, but when he is not working he stays home and listens to news on the radio.
Five years ago, Sok developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision, photophobia, and itchiness. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sok learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled there seeking treatment. On July 8th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Sok shared, “I hope I can see well after surgery so that I can work by myself more. I also hope my children do not worry about me and I can take care of myself again.”
