Man is a 53-year-old fisherman with one son, three daughters, and four grandchildren. Man lives with his wife and their youngest daughter who works in a garment factory. Man enjoys listening to comedy shows and football on TV and visiting the mosque with his wife.
Two years ago, the retina of Man’s left eye detached, causing him blurry vision and partial blindness. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Man learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for five hours with his wife seeking treatment. On May 26th, eye surgeons will perform a retinal detachment repair procedure in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, Man needs help to fund this $648 procedure.
Man shared, “I hope after surgery my eye can see better so I can go back to the sea and fish again.”
