Oun is a 60-year-old rice farmer along with his wife. Together that have two daughters, three sons, and many grandchildren. In his free time Oun shared that he enjoys listening to the news and monks pray on the radio.
Oun has developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Oun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for one hour by taxi with his son seeking treatment. On December 24th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $229 procedure.
Oun said, “After my surgery, I want to see clearly again so I can keep planting rice and take care of myself for many more years.”
