Thy is a cobbler from Cambodia. He likes to play soccer and take walks along the riverside area.
Four years ago, Thy developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Thy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for one hour seeking treatment. On October 17, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
He says, “I hope I can get back to work after the operation and see clearly again.”
