Saret is a 59-year-old motorcycle mechanic. He shared, “I hope after surgery my eye can see well so I can reopen my repair shop and earn money to support my family.”
Sarat has two daughters and four grandchildren. He lives with his wife and their grandchildren, and enjoys watching movies, the news, and listening to the monks pray on the radio.
One year ago, Saret developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurred vision, sensitivity to light, and tearing. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Saret learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled ther with his brother seeking treatment. On April 7th, doctors will perform a 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.
