Savoeun is a 67 year-old motorbike taxi driver from Battambang province. He is married, and has two sons, three daughters, and five grandchildren. Currently, he lives with his wife, who sells groceries in front of their home. Two of his children still live at home and go to school. In his downtime, he likes relaxing with his phone and looking at Facebook.
Two years ago, Savoeun developed a cataract in his left eye. He is uncomfortable, and his vision is impaired, all of which interfere with his ability to live confidently and independently.
Savoeun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, and sought their help. On January 11th, doctors at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre will perform cataract surgery, and implant an intraocular lens in his left eye. After recovery, Savoeun will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs your help to fund this $253 procedure.
Savouen shared: “I hope my vision improves. I want to be able to drive my motorbike easily for my job.”

Savoeun underwent cataract surgery.
Savoeun assumed that at his age, his vision would be poor until he listened to a neighbor in his village who also had eye surgery. After this, he traveled to our medical partner CSC, where he had successful surgery to remove his cataract. He rested for several days and applied eye drops daily to decrease the risk of infection. After, he was able to make the long trip home to his province. Savoeun can see better, support his family, and do the things he loves - ride his motorbike and catch up on the news.
Savoeun shared, “The doctor gave me a successful operation on my eye so that my eye could see clearly like before. It was free of charge for surgery and hospitalization - I feel CSC is the best hospital.”
