Sochan is a 36-year-old delivery driver. However, for six months, Sochan has not been able to work at the transportation company because of his poor vision due to a cataract. In Sochan’s free time, he enjoys feeding fish and playing football with his friends. He is married, and his wife is a garment worker.
One year ago, Sochan developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sochan learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled there with his wife seeking treatment. On July 16th, doctors will perform a cataract surgery and a lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Sochan shares what this surgery means for him, “I hope I can see clearly again after surgery. I want to drive well so I can go back to work and earn money for my family.”
