Tra is a 25-year-old goldsmith from Cambodia. He is the oldest of four siblings, with one brother and two sisters. He enjoys listening to music and playing football.
Two months ago, after an accident in which his eye was struck by wood, Tra developed a traumatic cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision.
When Tra learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three-and-a-half hours seeking treatment. On May 6th, doctors will perform phacoemulsification 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.
Tra said, “Before my accident I enjoyed my work. I hope that the surgery helps me see everything clearly again, so I can continue working and helping my siblings too.”
