Rong is a potato farmer from Cambodia. He has one son, three daughters, and five grandchildren. He enjoys chatting with his friends and fellow villagers.
One year ago, Rong developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him partial blindness, tearing, itchiness, and a clouded lens. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Rong learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 25, 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 my eye surgery is successful so I can see clearly and do my work. I want to be able to go outside by myself and to help my family to do some work at home.”
