Sareth is a 52-year-old rice farmer who needs cataract surgery so he can see clearly again. His wife is a garment worker and they have two sons, two daughters, and one grandchild. In his free time, Sareth likes to watch boxing on TV.
Two years ago, Sareth developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision and photophobia. Consequently, he has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so he cannot go places independently.
When Sareth learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 7th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $253 to fund this procedure.
Sareth says, “I want to be able to see better again and do all the things I need to.”
