Keu is a coffee seller who lives and works alongside his wife to operate a coffee stand together. They have a family of five children and seven grandchildren. Due to Keu’s sight, he has recently started to stay home and take care of his grandchildren while his wife works. Keu especially likes to listen to news on the radio and talk with his grandchildren.
Five years ago, Keu developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him sensitivity to light and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Keu learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled there seeking treatment. On July 19th, doctors will perform a cataract surgery and lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, CSC is requesting $229 to help fund this procedure.
Keu shares his hopes after recovery, “I’m hopeful that after surgery I can go back to my coffee stand and work with my wife again to support our family.”
