PhanNy is a 60-year-old dress seller from Cambodia. She has eight children and ten grandchildren, and enjoys watching Indian TV dramas in her free time.
One year ago, PhanNy developed a cataract in each eye, causing her photophobia and cloudy vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When PhanNy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 13, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification 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.
She says, “I hope that when my surgery is complete, I will be able to go back to work and help take care of my grandchildren.”
