“I miss reading books the most,” shares a now-hopeful Sman. 67-year-old Sman works as a schoolteacher and has four children and six grandchildren. He traveled six hours to reach our medical partner in Cambodia, Children’s Surgical Centre, in need of cataract surgery to restore his eyesight.

His doctors explain, “Sman’s vision began to blur about a year ago. He is now partially blind because of the cataract in his left eye. He cannot read anymore which makes it hard for him to work as a teacher.”

For $150, we can cover the cost of Sman’s cataract surgery, allowing him to return to life as normal. With improved vision, Sman will be able to teach and read his beloved novels once again!
