ChhaiLeang is a rice and mango farmer from Cambodia. He has two sons and one grandchild. He likes watching the news and boxing matches on TV. He also enjoys spending time with his grandchild.
Three years ago, ChhaiLeang developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurred vision, sometimes tearing, and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When ChhaiLeang learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On May 3, 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 I can see clearly than so I can help my child to sell goods and soft drinks. I want to continue my work and go outside on my own.”
