Chor is a 75-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has three daughters and eight grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the news and the monks pray on the radio.
Four years ago, Chor developed a cataract in each eye, causing him vision loss. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chor learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On August 7, 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 that I am able to go outside well on my own and will be able to recognize objects.”
