Oul is a 56-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. He lives with his wife and daughter, who is a student. Oul shared that he enjoys watching the news on his mobile phone during his free time.
About five months ago, Oul developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him irritation, blurry vision, and photophobia. Oul has had to stop working because he can no longer see to drive the trucks, which has created financial difficulties for his small family. Currently, he has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so he cannot go places on his own.
When Oul learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On December 13th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $253 to help fund this procedure.
Oul said: “I hope after this operation, I will able to continue my work well and go outside.”
