Ang is a 76-year-old carpenter from Cambodia. He has five sons, five daughters, and 15 grandchildren. Ang lives with his wife and he enjoys watching TV and keeping up with the news.
Seven years ago, Ang developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurred vision, irritation, and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ang learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled with his daughter by tuk tuk seeking treatment. On August 11th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery (SICS) 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 $229 procedure.
Ang said, “I hope after surgery my eye can see everything and everyone clearer than now so I can do any work and go to anywhere outside by myself.”
