Nary is a 79-year-old retired soldier from Cambodia. He has three sons, four daughters, and five grandchildren. Nary lives with his wife and two of his daughters. He shared that he likes to listen to the news and monks praying on the radio.
Around three years ago, Nary developed a cataract in his left eye, causing blurry vision, photophobia, tearing, and pain. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Nary learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours with his daughter seeking treatment. On November 23rd, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Nary said, “At this age I just want to go to the pagoda and look after my grandchildren. I hope my eye gets better so I can do this.”
