Sokhun is a 50-year-old food seller who is married and has one son and one daughter. Sokhun lives with his wife, who also works as a food seller at a school. In his free time, Sokhun enjoys spending time with his children, watching news on his smartphone, and listening to the radio.
Two years ago, Sokhun developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurred vision, irritation, and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sokhun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled there with his wife seeking treatment. On April 5th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and place 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.
Sokhun shared, “I hope my eye can see well after surgery so I can go outside and help my wife sell food to support ourselves.”
