Chhea is a 56-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has three children, four grandchildren, and enjoys watching Chinese and Khmer television shows in his free time.
Four months ago, Chhea developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurred vision, teary eyes, and irritation. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chhea learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On February 13, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
He says, “I hope my eye surgery is successful so that I can see everything clearly again, continue my work at the farm fields, and go out independently.”
