Ork is a 62-year-old banana and potato farmer. He has three sons, five daughters, and eleven grandchildren. Ork lives with his wife, who is also a farmer. In his free time, Ork enjoys listening to the news on his phone.
Three years ago, Ork 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 Ork learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two hours with his wife seeking treatment. On May 26th, 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.
Ork shared, “I hope I can recognize and see my family well and that I can return to the working in the field after my surgery.”
