Keus is a 72-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. In his free time, he likes to visit with his friends and other relatives.
Three months ago, Keus developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurred vision and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Keus learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 11, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
He says, “I hope that after my surgery, I am able to participate in ceremonies at the pagoda, and also continue to visit with my family and friends.”
