San is a 48-year-old tuk tuk driver from Cambodia. He’s married with two sons and lives with his wife who sells pork with rice. San enjoys listening to the news on the radio and watching boxing on TV.
At a young age, two years ago, San developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurring vision, tearing, and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When San learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled there with his wife seeking treatment. On September 23rd, doctors will perform phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
San said, “I hope after my surgery I can drive my tuk tuk well so I can do my job.”
