Bronh is a 63-year-old widower. A retired fisherman, he has one son, six daughters, and 16 grandchildren. He lost his wife several years ago and lives with one of his daughters, who is also a fisherman. He now stays at home, listening to the news on the radio or watching TV, but is lonely because he stays home by himself most of the day.
Two years ago, Bronh developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him cloudy vision and difficulty seeing in bright or low light. He is no longer able to throw a net to catch fish due to his poor vision.
When Bronh learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On December 6th, doctors will perform small incision cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $253 procedure.
Bronh shared: “I hope after my eye operation I can help my daughter with fishing and teach my grandchildren to fish too.”
