Slaiman is a 70-year-old man from Cambodia. He is married and has two sons, three daughters, and 15 grandchildren. He enjoys visiting the mosque, meditating, and joining in local ceremonies in his free time.
Two years ago, Slaiman developed a cataract in each eye, which has caused him to experience blurred vision. It is difficult for him to see things clearly, recognize faces, do any kind of work, and go anywhere on his own.
Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $398 to fund a phaco procedure and an intraocular lens implant for each of Slaiman’s eyes. The surgery is scheduled to take place on July 18 and, once completed, will hopefully restore Slaiman’s vision to its former state and allow him to live more comfortably.
