Rithsamoeun is a government worker from Cambodia. He has two sons, one daughter, and five grandchildren.
Five years ago, Rithsamoeun developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurred vision and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Rithsamoeun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for half an hour seeking treatment. On March 5, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 I can see everything clearly after the surgery. I want to continue my work as chief of my village again with improved vision.”
