Suos is a former rice farmer. He lives with his wife and his youngest daughter, who is a teacher. He has three daughters, six sons, and many grandchildren. He no longer works because of his age and poor vision. He likes to listen to news and prayers on the radio, and visit his local pagoda.
Three years ago, Suos developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him photophobia, itching, and blurred vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Suos 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 left eye. After recovery, Suos will be able to see clearly. Now, Suos needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Suos said, “I hope my eye can see clearly, then I can plant vegetables around my house to feed the family and go places by myself.”
