Seng is a grandfather of twelve from Cambodia. He has three daughters, four sons, and twelve grandchildren. He is a retired rice farmer. He likes to listen to monks pray on the radio.
Two years ago, Seng developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurry vision, and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Seng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for five hours seeking treatment. On December 10, 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.
His daughter says, “I worry about my father’s failing vision and about him going outside on his own.”
