Khorn is a 78-year-old rice farmer with two sons, two daughters, and six grandchildren. Khorn and his wife live with their eldest son who is a laborer and he enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio in his free time.
Seven years ago, Khorn developed a cataract in his left eye causing him sensitivity to light, blurry vision, and tearing. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Khorn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two hours with his son seeking treatment. On June 14th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Khorn shared, “I hope after surgery my eye can see well so I can go outside easily on my own and even join ceremonies at the pagoda again.”
