Stes is a 75-year-old fisherman and rice farmer. His wife also helps fish and together they have one son. In his free time, Stes enjoys listening to the news.
Five years ago, Stes developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him tearing, blurry vision, and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Stes learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled there seeking treatment. On June 28th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an implant in his right eye so he can see clearly after recovery. CSC is requesting $229 to fund this procedure.
Stes cheerfully shares his post-recovery plans, “I hope I can see clearly so I can go fishing more and visit the mosque by myself.”
