Khouch is an active six-year-old boy who lives with his parents and has two younger siblings. He is not yet in school, but enjoys playing with toy cars and is learning to ride his bike. His parents both work in construction to support the family.
A week ago, Khouch had a seizure and injured his eye. Khouch has now developed a cataract in his left eye, and he cannot see clearly. It is difficult for him to eat, to walk, to recognize faces, and to go anywhere outside.
When Khouch’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On January 10th, doctors will perform lensectomy and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he and his family need help to fund this $229 procedure.
Khouch’s mother shared, “I hope the doctors can treat my son, so he can regain his vision. I want him to go to school and be healthy like other children.”
