Hun is a retired teacher from Cambodia. He is married, with a family of three daughters, three sons, and six grandchildren. Hun lives with his wife and their eldest daughter, who is also a teacher. He enjoys reading books and listening to the news on the radio.
Six years ago, Hun developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision, photophobia, and tearing. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Hun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled there with his daughter seeking treatment. On June 17th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery on his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Hun is eager for recovery, “I hope I can see clearly so I am comfortable walking around on my own and can read easily. I want to go to the pagoda to join ceremonies and volunteer at the Buddhist university.”
