Phon is a father of eight from Cambodia. He has seven grandchildren and enjoys listening to the news on the radio and watching television.
One year ago, Phon developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Phon learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On November 18th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
Phon said, “I hope that I will be able to see clearly again and can return to my work on the rice farm.”
