Soy is a 59-year-old fried banana seller. He and his wife had three sons, but all three of them passed away due to devastating auto accidents. Soy lives with his wife who sells fried bananas with him. In his free time, Soy likes to listen to the news on the radio and watch boxing on TV.
Three years ago, Soy developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him itching, blurry vision, and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Soy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On September 6th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and will place 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.
Soy says, “I hope I can see clearly, so I can go back to help my wife to sell fried bananas and can drive my moto again.”
