This is Yi, a 60-year-old rice and crop farmer in Cambodia who enjoys listening to the news on the radio. Yi has three children and two grandchildren who he used to support through his work as a farmer, before his eyesight worsened.
Yi has hypermature cataracts in both eyes. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, reports that “Yi has had blurred vision for the past year because of his hypermature cataracts. He can no longer work as a rice and crop farmer.” Yi shared with our medical partners that he “is sad he cannot work or see anything very well and misses being able to read.”
For $150, we can provide Yi with the cataract surgery necessary to improve his eyesight and prevent blindness. Yi says he is “most looking forward to clearly seeing his grandchildren after his surgery.” Let’s help restore Yi’s vision so he can see his grandchildren and return to work!
