Soy is a 54-year-old construction worker. He and his wife have six children together, and he works alongside one of his sons. Recently, he has not been able to work, so he stays at home and takes care of his grandchildren. He enjoys listening to the news on the radio and telling stories to his grandchildren.
Three years ago, Soy developed a cataract in his left eye causing him blurry vision and sensitivity to light. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Soy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled there with his wife seeking treatment. On July 8th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Soy shared, “my wife has to work a lot to support our family, so I hope I can also return to work after this surgery. I hope I can take care of my family well.”
