Srean is a retired rice farmer from Prey Veng province. He is 53 years old and married with two sons and one grandchild. Several years ago, Srean’s wife lost her hand in a brick kiln accident, so Srean helps with many household chores. His oldest son, a construction worker, financially supports Srean and his wife. At home, Srean and his wife like to listen to the news on the radio.
Several years ago, Srean developed a cataract in his right eye, causing blurred vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking. His condition has also taken a mental toll, as he oftens feels disheartened by his difficulty helping his wife with daily chores like he used to.
When Srean learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On July 14th, Srean will undergo cataract surgery at CSC’s care center. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, Srean needs help to fund this $253 procedure.
Srean said “I hope after surgery I can see better, go outside, and perhaps plant rice again.”
