Meet Thay, a 73-year-old grandfather from Cambodia! Thay has eight grandchildren and enjoys listening to the news on the radio. Several months ago, Thay’s vision began to blur due to mature cataracts in both of his eyes.
Since experiencing vision impairment, Thay has had to depend on help from his family. According to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, “Thay has difficulty walking and moving around on his own.” The team adds, “He needs his daughter to help care for him which means she has less time to work and care for the rest of the family.”
Thay’s treatment will improve his eyesight and prevent blindness. Thay is excited to regain his vision, explaining, “I hope the surgery is a success so I can help my daughter in [making] noodle soup.”
For $150, we can fund Thay’s cataract surgery and prevent further vision loss! Let’s help Thay gain access to the medical care he needs to improve his vision so that he may return to the kitchen with his daughter soon!
