Phat is a vegetable farmer from Cambodia. She has one daughter, five sons, and ten grandchildren. She likes to listen to monks pray on the radio.
A month ago, Phat developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision, itchiness, tearing, and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Phat learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On December 7, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
Her husband says, “I hope my wife’s eye surgery is successful so that she can see clearly and return to work.”
