Ly is a 53-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has five grandchildren, and enjoys listening to music and listening to the monks pray on the radio.
Two months ago, Ly developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him photophobia, cloudiness, and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ly learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 23, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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.
His wife says, “I hope that my husband will be able to see more clearly after his operation, and that he will be able to return to his work on the rice farm.”
