Seam is a 65-year-old farmer with one daughter, three sons, and seven grandchildren. All his children are also farmers. Seam lives with his wife who is also a farmer. In his free time, Seam likes to listen to the monks pray on the radio.
Four years ago, Seam developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him photophobia, tearing, and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Seam learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 28th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and implant in his right eye so Seam can see clearly after recovery. CSC is requesting $229 to fund this procedure.
Seam wishes to become independent, “I hope I can see clearly after surgery. I want to go to the rice field by myself and plant some vegetables around my house to support my family.”
