Samnang is a 41-year-old taxi driver. He is married with one son and two daughters. His wife is a homemaker and his children are students in a local public school. When he is home, he likes to play volleyball and watch boxing on TV.
Two years ago, Samnang developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him deteriorating vision and photophobia. In his profession, he is required to read a small screen on his phone for directions, and he no longer sees the screen well. This has jeopardized his ability to make a living.
On October 18th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $253 procedure.
Samnang says, “I hope after surgery I can see better. I hope to recognize things well so I can drive my taxi to earn money to support my family’s living.”
