Lun is a 62-year-old farmer with one daughter, five sons, and seven grandchildren. Lun and his wife are rice farmers which keeps them very busy throughout the year. At the end of a long day at work, Lun likes to listen to the news on the radio and shared that he always enjoys his wife’s cooking.
One year ago, Lun developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision and photophobia. Lun has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so is not able to go places on his own.
When Lun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On April 20th doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery, and an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, Lun will be able to see clearly. Now, CSC is helping Lun raise $253 to fund the procedure.
Lun shared, “I hope after surgery I can see well again. I would like to continue to plant rice and vegetables to sell at our local market and earn money to support our living.”

Lun’s wife shared: “We are very grateful for your help. And, we are happy that Lun can see well again and won’t worry about tripping when he goes outside. He can see our family’s faces and help with housekeeping and the grandchildren. Thank you for supporting us to have good medical care.”
