Pho is a 65-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She is a mother of three, one son and two daughters, and she also has four grandchildren. When she is at home, she enjoys listening to the monks pray on the radio.
One year ago, Pho developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her vision loss and irritation. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Pho learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On February 4th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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 $229 procedure.
“I hope that my mom will be able to see better so she can recognize things again.” -Pho’s son
