Sokun is a 57-year-old driver and is married with three daughters and four grandchildren. Sokun works as a driver for the Ministry of Health and, in his free time, he enjoys listening to the radio.
Two months ago, Sokun developed a chalazion in his left eye, causing him pain, itchiness, and irritation. A chalazion is an inflamed cyst in a patient’s tear gland. It is difficult for him to see clearly and drive safely.
Sokun traveled for two and a half hours with his wife to seek treatment from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre. On June 2nd, surgeons will remove the cyst through a chalazion excision procedure. After recovery, Sokun’s symptoms should improve and he can continue working. He needs help raising $187 to fund this procedure.
Sokun shared, “I hope my eye swelling goes away and I can see well again so I can return to work without worries.”
