Hoeun is a 63-year old security guard from Cambodia. He has two children and two grandchildren, and enjoys watching Khmer dramas on television in his spare time.
Three months ago, Hoeun developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision, pain, and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Hoeun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On October 02, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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.
Hoeun said, “I hope that after surgery, I will be able to see clearly and can return to my work as a security guard at the factory.”
