Oun is a 67-year-old farmer. She and her husband have six children (one son and five daughters) and many grandchildren. While most of her children have relocated for work, her youngest daughter still lives nearby. Oun is a seasonal farmer, and in her free time, she enjoys caring for her grandchildren, growing vegetables, and listening to the radio.
Three years ago, Oun developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, photophobia, and an occasional feeling of pain. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going outside.
When Oun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for three hours to seek treatment. On August 25th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $229 to fund this procedure.
Oun shared, “I hope that my vision can get better so that I can work more during the next season.”
