Thorn is a motorcyle taxi driver from Cambodia. He has one son and three grandchildren. He likes to read and watch boxing matches.
Two years ago, Thorn developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision, burning, itchiness, tearing, and a clouded lens. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Thorn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two hours 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 look forward to planting a banana tree and lemongrass plants around my house after I return home.”
