Loun is a fisherman from Cambodia. He has three daughters, five sons, and ten grandchildren. He likes to listen to monks pray on the radio.
A year ago, Loun developed a cataract in each eye, causing him blurry vision and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Loun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for five hours seeking treatment. On November 8, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
His daughter says, “I am unhappy that my father cannot see well. I hope the surgery is a success.”
