Sarin is a 62-year-old man from Cambodia who is married and has four daughters, six sons, and 30 grandchildren. He works as a corn and vegetable farmer. In his free time, Sarin likes to watch boxing on TV and listen to the news on the radio.
About two years ago, Sarin developed a cataract in each eye, which has caused him to experience blurred vision, extreme sensitivity to light, and cloudy lenses. As a result, it is difficult for him to see things clearly, recognize faces, work, and go anywhere on his own.
Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $398 to fund a phaco procedure and an intraocular lens implant for each of Sarin’s eyes. The surgery is scheduled to take place on July 4 and, once completed, will hopefully restore Sarin’s vision to its former state and allow him to live more comfortably.
