Chhay is a baker from Cambodia. He has two sons, six daughters, and twelve grandchildren. He likes to watch music videos and boxing matches. He likes to make desserts.
Four years ago, Chhay developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurred vision, clouded lenses, and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chhay learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 26, doctors will perform a small incision 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 think my vision is improved so I can continue my business selling desserts and recognize faces of my loved ones.”
