Nov is a 52-year-old rice farmer from Prey Veng province. He is married and has one son, three daughters, and two grandchildren. Sadly, his wife passed away four years ago. Since then, he has been living with his oldest daughter, who supports them by selling eggs in the market. In his free time, he likes listening to the radio and watching the news.
About two years ago, Nov developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him photophobia, tearing, and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, thus he is unable to travel on his own.
When Nov learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On February 13th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and implant an intraocular lens n his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Nov needs help raising $253 to fund his procedure.
Nov said, “I hope after surgery I can work and recognize people well.”

Nov underwent his cataract surgery and is healing well.
Nov and his daughter traveled to the capital to visit our medical partner CSC with the aim of improving his vision. After his surgery, Nov was able to return home with eye drops and is happy to be healing well. His eye felt a bit dry for the first few days, but his sight has gradually improved. Nov is relieved and feels more independent. He has returned to farming rice on his ancestral land and looks forward to watching the news after a long day outside.
Nov’s daughter said: “We are really relieved to see my father can see well so he can plant rice for our family to eat and go outside by himself. We don’t worry about his eye anymore. Thank you to the hospital who took good care of him and gave him this care.”
