Ly is a vegetable farmer from Cambodia. He has two sons, three daughters, seven grandchildren. He likes to listen to monks pray on the radio and read about Buddha.
A year ago, Ly developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him tearing, irritation, and a cloudy lens. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ly learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On November 12, doctors will perform a small incision 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.
He says, “I hope my surgery is successful so I can see my grandkids’ faces and I can read.”
