Sim is a 72-year-old grandfather from Cambodia. He loves his three children and twelve grandchildren. He likes to read books on Buddhism, listen to monks pray on the radio, and join ceremonies at the pagoda.
About a year ago, Sim developed cataracts in both eyes. This causes him to experience blurred vision and photophobia (extreme sensitivity to light). It is difficult for him to see things clearly, do work around the house, or go places on his own. He is worried about going blind.
Sim traveled three hours with his daughter to reach our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), and their care center, Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre. He is scheduled to receive cataract surgery on February 13. Our medical partner is requesting $292 to cover the cost of surgery. After treatment, Sim will be able to see clearly again.
