Long is a rice farmer from Cambodia. He has two sons, one daughter, and one grandchild. He enjoys watching boxing matches, new programs and films on TV.
Two months ago, Long developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him partial blindness, pain, and tearing. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Long learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 10, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
He says, “I hope I can see everything clearly so I can easily do my work at the farm and I can go outside by myself.”
