Soy is a 55-year-old rice farmer who is married and has one daughter, two sons, and five grandchildren. Soy lives with his wife who is also a farmer and his oldest daughter who is a garment worker. They also have a few cows to support their family. At home, Soy likes to watch the news and funny stories on TV.
Five years ago, Soy developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him sensitivity to light and blurry vision. Soy has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so is not able to go places on his own.
When Soy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 6th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, Soy will be able to see clearly. CSC is raising $253 to fund this life altering procedure.
Soy shared, “I really hope after surgery, I will be able to see better again. I want do more with my days.”
