Sothea is a 46-year-old who sells vegetables at the market. He is married with two daughters, and his wife also sells vegetables. He enjoys listening to classical music on the radio.
About one year ago, Sothea developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurred vision, tearing, and photophobia. Now he has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sothea learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for four hours with his wife seeking treatment. On September 22nd, doctors will perform phacoemulsification 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 $229 procedure.
Sothea said, “I hope I can see easily again so I can drive my motor bike and continue my business selling vegetables with my wife to support our family.”
