Chey is a 86-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has one son, five daughters, and twelve grandchildren. He enjoys listening to monks pray on the radio and visiting the pagoda.
Six months ago, Chey developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision that prevents him from walking around, even inside his home. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere.
When Chey learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled to the hospital seeking treatment. On April 28th, 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 can see something better after my surgery. I want to go back to the pagoda to join ceremonies with my family again,” Chey said.
