Sokhoeun is a 59-year-old taxi driver from Cambodia. He has three sons and two daughters. He enjoys watching and listening to the news on TV and radio.
Five months ago, Sokhoeun developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him irritation, pain, and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sokhoeun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for one hour seeking treatment. On April 27th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract 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 $229 procedure.
“I hope that my vision will improve enough so that I can go back to my work as a taxi driver,” Sokhoeun said.
