Yim is a 70-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has nine children, ten grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio in his spare time.
One month ago, Yim developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him vision loss. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Yim learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. Doctors will perform a small incision 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 $211 procedure.
“I hope that I will be able to go outside on my own and can recognize things again. I hope I will be able to eat and do the housework easily like before,” shared Yim.
