Sothan underwent eye surgery.
Sothan had successful surgery and is resting at home with antibiotics to decrease the risk of infection. It may take several weeks before his eye heals completely, but the redness and swelling have disappeared, and this will help him see well enough to drive his taxi and live more comfortably. He is the sole breadwinner for his family, and it is important for him to have a job to provide for the people he loves.
Sothan said: “I am so happy my eye will look better and won’t be ugly. I am grateful that the staff put me at ease, and that I was in good hands with them. I can see well to drive my taxi and support my family’s needs. Thank you to the donors who paid for my surgery so I can pay for my son’s school.”

Sothan is a 38-year-old motor taxi driver, living with his wife and son. In addition to listening to the radio, in his free time, Sothan enjoys taking walks with his wife along the beach near their village.
A month ago, Sothan developed an inflamed cyst in the tear gland of his left eye. The cyst causes itchiness, irritation and swelling, and it is also unsightly. Most important of all, however, it makes it difficult for Sothan to see clearly, which impacts his ability to drive, and to earn a living for his family.
Sothan traveled a great distance to seek treatment from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre. With their help, he is now scheduled to have surgery on October 3rd, at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre. During this procedure, surgeons will remove the cyst, enabling Sothan to regain clear vision. Sothan needs your help to raise the $210 needed to fund his operation.
Sothan said: “I hope after surgery the cyst will go away, and I won’t worry about being able to safely drive my taxi.”
