Lem is a 43-year-old delivery driver. He’s married and has one son and one daughter. Lem’s wife sells vegetables at the market and their children are both in school.
Five years ago, Lem developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision, sensitivity to light, and tearing. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Lem learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled with his wife seeking treatment. On June 3rd, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Lem shared, “I cannot see anything so it is hard for me to work right now. I hope I can see again so I can work, be independent, and help my wife sell vegetables at the market.”
