This is Him, a father of three and grandfather of ten! Him is a 56-year-old man from Cambodia who, until recently, worked on a rubber plantation to support his family. However, about two years ago his vision began to blur, and he has been unable to work since then.
“He is unhappy that he cannot work and help care for his family,” says our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre.
Him has mature cataracts in both eyes. Not only is he unable to work and care for his family, but he misses other hobbies such as watching TV. Fortunately, Him can receive cataract surgery for $150, which will restore his vision. The treatment will also prevent future blindness.
Let’s help Him care for his children and grandchildren, and be able to see them grow up!
