Nalek is a 10-year-old primary school student from Cambodia. When he is not in school, Nalek loves to paint pictures, eat oranges, and play with his toy cars.
Since birth, Nalek developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurred and cloudy vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Nalek learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On February 14, doctors will perform a lensectomy 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.
