Chorn is a 46-year-old guard in his village in Cambodia. He’s married with one daughter, three sons, and four beautiful grandchildren. Chorn lives with his wife who is a grocery seller. In his free time, Chorn enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
Two years ago, Chorn developed a cataract in his left eye causing him blurry vision and tearing. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chorn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for an hour with his wife seeking treatment. On May 6th, doctors will perform a small incision 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.
Chorn shared, “I hope after surgery I can see well again so I can go to work and help my wife sell groceries at home.”
