Phat is a 50-year-old laborer. He is married and has two sons, two daughters, and one grandson. Phat lives with his wife and their children. At home he likes to watch Khmer boxing on TV.
One year ago, the retina of Phat’s left eye detached, causing him partial blindness and tearing. When Phat learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On October 26th, eye surgeons will perform a retinal detachment repair procedure in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $648 procedure.
Phat says, “I will feel happy when my eye heals because I can return to working and helping my wife on the rice field.”
