Meng Sreng is a 60-year-old laborer from Cambodia. He is married and has one son, one daughter, and two grandchildren. Meng Sreng lives with his wife and their daughter, who both work as garment workers. In his free time, Meng Sreng likes to listen to the news on the radio and watch boxing on TV.
One week ago, Meng Sreng developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him tearing and blurry vision. As a result, he has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Meng Sreng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On October 21st, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, Meng Sreng will be able to see clearly again. CSC is requesting $229 to fund this procedure.
Meng Sreng shared, “After surgery, I hope my eye can see clearly again so I can go back to work and enjoy time with my family.”
