Bunheng is a 58-year-old vegetable seller from Cambodia. He lives with his wife and four children. He has two daughters and two sons. His wife works with him at the market. He spends time at home playing games with his children, and reading news on his phone.
Two years ago, Bunheng developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision and tearing. In the last seven months his symptoms have gotten worse. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Bunheng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for five hours by taxi seeking treatment. On July 6th, 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.
Bunheng shared, “Once my vision is more clear, I can drive my bike, continue with my business and earn money to support my family.”
