Sok is a 43-year-old taxi driver who is married with a son and a daughter. Both of his children are in elementary school. His wife sells food at the local market. Sok has not been able to work for more than a year, so lately he has enjoyed growing vegetables that his wife can sell, listening to the radio, and walking with his children to school.
Four years ago, Sok developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him irritation, sensitivity to light, and blurry vision. 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 there with his wife seeking treatment. On May 17th, doctors will perform a 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 shared, “I will be so happy to be able to drive my motorbike and work again. I hope that I can make my family happy and support them well.”
