Phal is a 64-year-old proud grandmother with three sons, four daughters, and many grandchildren. Phal currently lives with her youngest daughter and her husband who is a retired police officer. In her free time, she likes to listen to monks preaching on the radio.
Two years ago, Phal developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her photophobia, itchiness, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Phal learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for seven and a half hours with her daughter seeking treatment. On February 16th doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, Phal needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Phal shared, “I hope after surgery I can see better and return to doing my housework. I cannot wait to enjoy going outside and taking care of my grandchildren well.”
