Vannat is a 67-year-old retired government worker from Cambodia. He has four children, four grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the news on the radio.
One year ago, Vannat developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him vision loss. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Vannat learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On October 07, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
Vannat said, “I hope that after surgery I can see clearly so that I can return to helping my family back in the village.”
