Sok is a 73-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. Sok is married with three sons, six daughters, and 16 grandchildren. He lives with his wife and one of their daughters. Sok enjoys listening to the monks praying and reading the Buddhist book.
Six years ago, Sok developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision, tearing, photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sok learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours with his daughter seeking treatment. On September 25th, doctors will perform phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Sok said, “I hope my eye surgery is successful so I can help my family and be able to read my books. I also want to be able to drive my motorbike anywhere on my own.”
