Ounty is a five-year-old boy from Cambodia. He is an only child. He enjoys drinking milk, playing with toy cars, and watching cartoons.
Ounty was born with a cataract in his left eye, causing him partially blind vision, a cloudy lens, and redness. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ounty learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On October 31, doctors will perform a lensectomy surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, his family needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
His mother says, “I hope my son’s vision improves and he can start school soon.”
