Thac is a 74-year-old tailor from Cambodia. He has ten grandchildren and likes to listen to the radio.
One year ago, Thac developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision and irritation. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Thac learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On February 11, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
He says, “I hope that after my surgery I will be able to go to the pagoda and other ceremonies without any difficulty.”
