Roeun is a 63-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. He and his wife have six sons, one daughter, and eight grandchildren. He enjoys watching news on TV and growing vegetables in his garden.
Three years ago, Roeun developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision and eye pain. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Roeun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled more than three hours seeking treatment. On August 4th, 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.
Roeun said, “I hope this surgery helps me go back to work so I can keep earning some money for a few more years. I want to support my wife and I and help my children if I need to.”
