Chork is a 67-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has four children, five grandchildren, and in his spare time he enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio and watching boxing on television.
Five months ago, Chork 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 Chork learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for six and a half hours seeking treatment. On December 10th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $211 procedure.
“I hope that I will be able to see better and can recognize things again. I also hope that I will be able to go outside on my own again and return to work.”
