Soeun is a 69-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has six grandchildren and in his spare time, he likes to listen to the monks pray on the radio.
Five months ago, Soeun developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Soeun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 5, 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 after my surgery, I am able to see better and go back to my work on the rice farm.”
