Mut is a hardworking 33-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He is married and has twin sons. His wife also works as a farmer. During his free time, Mut enjoys listening to the news and watching boxing.
Six months ago, Mut’s eye was hit by bamboo. Due to this incident, he developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him to experience blurry vision and eye tearing. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so he is not able to go places on his own.
When Mut learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On July 11th, doctors will perform a small incision 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 $253 procedure.
Mut says, “I hope after surgery I can go to the rice field again and also plant some vegetables around my house for extra income.”
