Ra is a 57-year-old house painter from Cambodia. He is married and has one son, one daughter, and two grandchildren. Ra’s wife is a garlic seller. He enjoys watching Khmer dramas and the news on TV.
Five years ago, Ra developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurred vision, tearing, photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ra learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for four hours with his wife seeking treatment. On October 6th, doctors will perform phacoemulsification 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.
Ra said, “I hope I can see everything clearer than now after my eye surgery so I can do my job and drive my motorbike anywhere.”
