Sivan is a 59-year-old grocery seller from Cambodia, who has three sons and two grandchildren. He sells groceries and other household items with his wife from their home. He enjoys listening to news on the radio and playing on Facebook in his free time.
Two years ago, Sivan developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision, tearing, and itchiness. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sivan learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for more than three hours seeking treatment. On May 11th, 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 $229 procedure.
Sivan says, “I hope I can see better so I can drive my motorbike to deliver things for my business and help my wife more with our housework.”
