Tim is a 72-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He is married with three sons, three daughters, and 17 grandchildren. He lives with his wife and youngest daughter and share that he most enjoys reading and visiting the pagoda.
Seven years ago, Tim developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision and irrigation. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Tim learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours by tuk tuk with his daughter seeking treatment. On September 21st, 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 $229 procedure.
Tim said, “I hope after surgery I can see everything clearer than now and I can recognize everyone. I want to be able to read easily again.”
