Noun is a 68-year-old rice farmer. In her free time, Noun enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio and visiting the pagoda.
Four years ago, Noun developed a cataract in her right eye causing her sensitivity to light, blurry vision, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Noun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours with her neighbor seeking treatment. On June 10th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Noun shared, “after surgery I hope I am able to recognize people well and get around easily enough to plant vegetables around my house to sell for income. I want to visit the pagoda when my vision improves.”
