Rin is a 67-year-old assistant commune worker from Cambodia. He has two sons, one daughter, and seven grandchildren. His favorite activity is listening to the monks pray on the radio in the eveningtime.
One year ago, Rin developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Rin learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 9th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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.
Rin said, “I hope that I will be able to go outside easily again and can recognize my relatives’ faces and be able to read.”
