Farewell to Dr Kim Frumar
Writer Dr William Trinh
We were very sad to hear the sudden passing of our friend Dr Kim Frumar on 16th April 2016. Kim was not only a great ophthalmologist but also a philanthropist. He spent significant part of his life to help the poor, especially the blind through his work and training in Cambodia.
Kim was the chairman of Cambodian International Sight Association (CISA) which has recently signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with AHHA for our charity in Cambodia.
Kim was involved with Cambodian Vision for a number of years and for the last one year I was fortunate to meet him and had been in constant discussion with him on how AHHA and CISA could work together to provide free cataract surgeries to the poor in Cambodia and training to local Cambodian ophthalmologists. He was very generous with his time and donating his equipment for the charity work. We were both very excited at the coming Cambodian field trip. Unfortunately his life was cut short but meaningful.
We would like to send our deep condolences to his partner Teresa and his family.
Kim will be dearly missed.
May Kim rest in peace.
In memory of Dr Kim Frumar's legacy, a Dr Kim Frumar scholarship is established for training Cambodian ophthalmologists. Your generous donation to Dr Kim Frumar's Appeal will keep his dream alive.
All donations to Dr Kim Frumar's Appeal has been transferred and is now managed by the Eye Surgeons Foundation.
Thank you for your generosity.
