Yoeung is a grandfather from Cambodia. He has one daughter and two grandchildren. He likes to listen to monks pray on the radio. He used to be a rice farmer when his vision was better.
A year ago, Yoeung developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurry vision and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Yoeung learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for five hours seeking treatment. On December 5, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
He says, “I look forward to going for walks on my own and feeding my chickens at home. I hope my vision is much improved.”
