Tek Lay is a 60-year-old rice farmer who loves to cook. He has three daughters, five sons, and 20 grandchildren. Tek Lay lives with his wife near their children who are all farmers. He likes to watch the news and comedies on TV.
Four years ago, Tek Lay developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him photophobia, tearing, and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so is not able to go places on his own.
When Tek Lay learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 13th, 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 $253 procedure.
Tek Lay says, “I hope I can see well and can work as a chef at a wedding event in the future.”
