Monh is a 63-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has four daughters, nine grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
Five months ago, Monh developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Monh learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On January 13th, 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.
“I hope that I will be able to see more clearly and can go outside and visit the pagoda again on my own,” said Monh.
