Kong is a 52-year-old police officer from Cambodia. He has five children and two grandchildren, and he enjoys reading the newspaper in his spare time.
Four months ago, Kong developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Kong learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 3, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 that after my surgery, I will be able to see again and go back to work.”
