Houn is a proud mother of six and grandmother of 20. Houn lives with her eldest son, who is a farmer. She enjoys listening to the monks praying on the radio or at the pagoda.
Seven years ago, Houn developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, tearing, photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Houn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for two and half hours with her daughter seeking treatment. On June 16th, 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.
Houn said, “I hope my surgery goes well and I can see clearly, go outside on my own, and even go to ceremonies at far away pagodas.”
