Rob is a 67-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has five sons, one daughter, and nine grandchildren. When he has spare time, he enjoys visiting the local pagoda nearby his house with his friends.
One year ago, Rob developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Rob learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On February 10th, 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 $229 procedure.
“I hope that I will be able to see better so I can help take care of my grandchildren and help with the housework, and go anywhere I want to.”
