Pov is a 56-year-old security guard who lives with his two sons and one daughter who are all students. He is unable to work and has no income, so he stays home to care for his children. He likes to listen to the news on the radio in his free time.
Two years ago, Pov developed a cataract in his right eye causing him blurry vision and difficulty seeing in low or bright light. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Pov learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On September 10th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract 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 $229 procedure.
Pov shared, “I hope I can see clearly again after surgery. I want to go back to work again to earn money to support my children’s studies and my living.”
