Sok Kheang is a 74-year-old milk factory worker from Cambodia. He has four children, six grandchildren, and enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio in his free time.
Two years ago, Sok Kheang developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him vision loss. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sok Kheang learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for half an hour seeking treatment. On November 22, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract 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.
Sok Kheang said, “I hope that I will be able to recognize my relatives' faces and will be able to go outside on my own again.”
