Oun is a 60-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has ten grandchildren and enjoys watching both Khmer and Thai TV shows in her free time.
Two years ago, Oun developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision and vertigo. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Oun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for eight and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 11, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
She says, “I hope that after my surgery, I will be able to go outside by myself and continue my work at the rice farm.”
