Horm is a 66-year-old rice farmer from Kandal province. He is married and has one daughter, four sons, and three grandchildren. His wife sells coffee in front of their home with his youngest daughter, who also is a clothes garment worker. At home, Horm enjoys listening to the monks pray and the news on the radio.
Three years ago, Horm developed a cataract in his right eye. This can make it difficult to see any small details clearly. He is unable to work out in the field and feels bad because it is his responsibility as the head of his family.
When Horm learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On October 16th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery, and an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $253 procedure.
Horm shared: “I hope after surgery I can see better and feel happy. I hope to return to growing rice well and seeing the faces of my children and grandchildren.”
