Ky is a 70-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has four children and two grandchildren. In his free time he likes to listen to the monks pray.
One year ago, Ky developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurred vision, irritation, and itching. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ky learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On February 6, 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 that after my surgery I can continue my work at the farm field and can go anywhere outside independently.”
