Chheng is a 60-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has nine children, seven grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the news on the radio during his free time.
One year ago, Chheng developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him vision loss. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chheng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On November 21, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
Chheng said, “ hope that I will be able to see clearly so I can return to my work on the farm and can help feed the cows.”
