Choeun is a 61-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has six children and six grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio in his spare time.
Six months ago, Choeun developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurry vision, tearing, and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Choeun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On October 02, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
Choeun said, “I hope that my operation is successful so I will be able to see clearly again and can return to the rice field.”
