2018- Khmer Sight Foundation
In 2018, we proudly raised $12000 for the Khmer Sight Foundation.
We are happy to say our donations helped the foundation buy equipment for all visiting surgeons and healthcare professionals to help run the camp in Phnom Penh.
Give Cambodia Sight—Through Khmer Sight Foundation!
Each year 40,000 Cambodians are going without cataract and other necessary eye surgeries!
This year, over 120 ophthalmologists and other eye care professionals are scheduled to DONATE THEIR SERVICES to screen approximately 20,000 underserved Cambodians in need of eye care and perform approximately 10,000 cataract and pterygium surgeries for needy Cambodians.
Khmer Sight Foundation has been performing these screening missions and surgeries for 2 years with an eye towards self-sustainable eye care and treatment in Cambodia by the year 2025.
Khmer Sight Foundation is in desperate need for surgical supplies and equipment to perform these surgeries. In general, the cost of supplies PER cataract surgery is $75. Here is a brief list of supplies, equipment, and services that your donation will allow Khmer Sight Foundation to Give Cambodia Sight!

Surgical supplies (e.g., Sutures: $10 per patient, KSF plans to perform 10,000 this year)
