Sieng is a 51-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has three children and one grandchild, and in his free time he likes to go for walks around the village.
Two years ago, Sieng developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurred vision and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sieng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 11, 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 is complete, I am able to go back to my work on the rice farm like before.”
