Meet Bunnat, a hardworking rice farm laborer, aged 62, who is married and has one daughter, two sons, and two beloved grandchildren. Together with his wife, they work as day laborers on a rice farm in northern Cambodia. The work is arduous, but they persevere, hoping to retire someday. However, they must continue working until their children can fully support them financially. During his evenings, Bunnat finds solace in listening to the news on the radio. Around eight months ago, Bunnat started experiencing problems with his left eye due to a cataract. The cataract has caused sensitivity to light, tearing, and blurry vision, making it challenging for him to carry out his work in the rice paddies. He feels frustrated that he can no longer work as efficiently as before and struggles to see things clearly, including colors and faces. Fearful of potential accidents, he has refrained from going places alone. Upon learning about the Children's Surgical Centre (CSC), our medical partner, Bunnat decided to travel for four and a half hours to seek treatment. On August 2nd, skilled doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and implant an intraocular lens in his left eye. This procedure, costing $253, holds the promise of restoring his vision and enabling him to return to work, venture outside independently, and earn a living once more. CSC is requesting $253 to help fund this procedure. Bunnat said, "I hope after surgery I can see better and I can go back to work again, go outside, and earn money for my living."
