about Leng's recovery.

September 14, 2021

Leng is a 24-year-old farmer. His parents are divorced, and he lives with his mother and six siblings. When Leng is not farming in the fields, he enjoys listening to music on the radio.

A year ago, Leng developed glaucoma in his left eye. Glaucoma is an eye condition that causes damage to the eye’s optic nerve, or the nerve connecting the eye to the brain. As a result, Leng is experiencing slow vision loss and difficulty looking ahead or recognizing faces.

Leng traveled to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), to receive treatment. On September 14th, surgeons will perform a glaucoma procedure to improve his vision. CSC is requesting $277 to fund Leng’s procedure.

Leng shared, “After surgery, I hope I will not have a fear of going blind. I want to support our farm by raising chickens to sell.”
