Raksa is a three-year-old boy from Cambodia. He is the youngest of three siblings, and likes to play with his toy cars.
Since birth, Raksa developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Raksa learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On May 6, doctors will perform lensectomy 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 $211 procedure.
His mother says, “I hope that after surgery, my son will be able to see clearly and I won’t worry about his vision.”
