Sath is an 81-year-old retired soldier from Cambodia. He has three sons, three daughters, and many grandchildren. Sadly, his wife passed away more than 20 years ago. He lives with his eldest daughter, who is a primary school teacher. He likes to listen to the news on TV, visit the pagoda, grow vegetables and teach his grandchildren.
One year ago, Sath developed a cataract in his right eye causing him blurry vision and tearing. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sath learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On July 12th, doctors will perform a small incision 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.
Sath shared, “when my sight gets better, I will start traveling again by myself, so I can see many more pagodas.”
