Krim is a 58-year-old retired blacksmith from Cambodia. He cannot see well so does not work anymore. He has one daughter and two sons, and lives with his sister and daughter.
Two years ago, Krim developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Krim learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for across the country for seven hours with his daughter seeking treatment. On December 24th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $229 procedure.
Krim said, “I hope after surgery I can see better so I can go outside by myself and see things well. I want to become a herdsman.”
