Khoeun is a 62-year-old bike mechanic from Cambodia. He has six children and three grandchildren, and he enjoys listening to the radio in his free time.
Five years ago, Khoeun developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Khoeun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for one hour seeking treatment. On April 9, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
He says, “I hope that after my surgery I will feel better and be able to see clearly so I can help my family and go back to work.”
