Meng is a 67-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has six children, eight grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio and visiting the Pagoda in his free time.
Six months ago, Meng developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Meng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On October 03, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $211 procedure.
Meng said, “I hope that after my surgery, I will be able to go outside and visit the Pagoda on my own.”
