Yun is an 84-year-old grandfather living with his family in Cambodia. He is married with four sons, one daughter, and five grandchildren. He enjoys visiting the pagoda and listening to the monks pray in his free time.
Three years ago, Yun started having blurred vision and became unable to work well or travel independently. He and his nephew traveled three hours to visit our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). He was found with a cataract in each eye and was recommended surgical treatment.
Yun’s doctors told him he was in need of a phacoemulsification and an intraocular lens implant in each eye, which will replace his internal lenses and restore his vision to full clarity. In total, the procedure, supplies, drugs, and three days of inpatient care will cost $225. Yun’s family needs financial assistance to complete payment.
Yun will have his vision cleared after full recovery from his surgery and will be able to work independently. “I hope I will see everything clearly,” he adds, “and will be able to look after my grandchildren.” His nephew is looking forward to the relief that will come after Yun is independent again.
