Thai received treatment to restore his vision.

Thai’s surgery was a success! His doctor at Children’s Surgical Centre writes, “Thai’s second surgery was a success and his eyesight has been restored now that both cataracts have been removed! He looks forward to being able to care for his grandchildren and visiting the pagoda on his own to listen to the monks pray.”

Say hi to Thai, an 82-year-old man in Cambodia who has five children and six grandchildren. Thai has a mature cataract in his right eye which affects his vision.

Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), explains, “Thai had a successful surgery to remove the cataract in his left eye but for his vision to be fully restored the remaining cataract in his right eye will also need to be removed.”

For $150, Thai will receive the surgery he needs to see clearly again. CSC tells us, “He likes listening to the monks praying and is looking forward to being able to go to the pagoda on his own if his eyesight is restored. Thai also looks forward to taking care of his grandchildren.”

Let’s help Thai get his eyesight back and achieve these goals!
