Nan is a 67-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has six children, seven grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio in his free time.
One year ago, Nan developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Nan learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 22, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $211 procedure.
He says, “I hope that after my surgery is complete I will be able to rejoin the ceremonies at the pagoda.”
