Spotlight: China-aided project transforms lives of over 6,000 cataract patients in Cambodia

Sam Him, a 78-year-old farmer in Cambodia’s Kampon Cham province, used to be in blindness because of cataracts in his eyes and could not even walk normally without the company of a family member. His life changed last year after Chinese doctors removed the cataracts and restored his vision.

“Now, my both eyes can see clearly, see even small ants. I’m very happy and satisfied with my life,” he told Xinhua on Tuesday.

“I’d like to thank the Chinese medical team for helping restore sight for Cambodian patients … they have brought me new hope, and I will never forget their kindness,” he said.
