Phae is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has a daughter, three sons, and eight grandchildren. She enjoys watching Thai dramas on TV.
Two years ago, Phae developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurry vision and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Phae learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On September 4, 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 my eye surgery makes my vision clear so I can continue my work at the farm and I can lead an independent life.”
