Chorn is a 58-year-old farmer. He is married and has four sons, five daughters, and many grandchildren. Chorn lives with his wife who also works as a farmer. Nowadays, he stays at home because of his poor vision.
Five months ago, Chorn developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision and sensitivity to light. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chorn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for seven hours seeking treatment. On October 18th, 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 $229 procedure.
Chorn shared, “I hope my eye can see well again. I want to go back to planting rice as well as some vegetables around my house to earn extra income for our family.”
