Savuth is a 60-year-old soldier from Cambodia. He has one son, two daughters and seven grandchildren. He lives with his wife and his unmarried children. He enjoys repairing computers in his free time, or playing games on his phone.
Three years ago, Savuth developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Savuth learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for one-and-a-half hour by taxi seeking treatment. On July 13th, doctors will perform a small incision 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 $229 procedure.
Savuth shared, “I hope after surgery I can read my books and letters again, and see everyone’s faces clearly so I can do my job well and take care of my family.”
