Pun is a 73-year-old loving grandmother and widow. Her husband unfortunately passed away several years ago. She lives with her son, who is a construction worker and helps support her. Due to her poor vision, she spends most of her time at home, often listening to monks pray on the radio.
Five years ago, Pun developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her to experience blurry vision and tearing in her eye. She is unable to see in bright or dim lighting. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so she is not able to go places on her own.
When Pun learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On July 4th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery, and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $253 procedure.
Pun says, “I hope I can see well enough to take care of myself well and go places on my own.”
