Hak is a 53-year-old farmer with one son, four daughters, and four grandchildren. Hak lives with his wife and their son. His wife and his son are also rice farmers. Hak likes to listen to the radio news and watch Khmer boxing on TV.
One year ago, the retina of Hak’s right eye detached, causing him blurred vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Hak learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On November 2nd, eye surgeons will perform a retinal detachment repair procedure in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $648 procedure.
Hak says, “I hope my eye can see well after surgery so I can go back to the rice field.”
