Hong San is a 69-year-old retired government worker from Cambodia. He has six children, ten grandchildren, and enjoys reading scripture in his free time.
One year ago, Hong San developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision and irritation. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Hong San learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On August 8, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
He says, “I hope that after my surgery, I will be able to recognize my relatives’ faces, and return to the pagoda to attend the ceremonies.”
