Saut is an 82-year-old retired farmer from Cambodia. He has one daughter and four grandchildren and lives with his wife. He spends a lot of time at the local pagoda doing various kinds of work for the monks, and he reads a lot of religious books in his spare time.
Ten years ago, Saut developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him partial blindness and irritation. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Saut learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three-and-a-half hours seeking treatment. On June 8th, doctors will perform a small incision 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.
Saut said, “Now I need many people to help me a lot in anything I try to do. I hope that my eye surgery will make it so I can do things by myself. I want to walk to the pagoda and do housework on my own.”
