Samon is a 51-year-old tuk-tuk driver from Cambodia. He has three children, three grandchildren, and enjoys watching Khmer dramas and the news on television in his free time.
Three months ago, Samon developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurry vision and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Samon learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for one hour seeking treatment. On August 5, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
He says, “I hope that I will be able to see clearly again so I can continue my work as a tuk-tuk driver.”
