Phon is an artisan from Cambodia. She has three sons, four daughters, and ten grandchildren. She likes to watch Thai films and listen to monks praying on the radio.
One year ago, Phon developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her tearing and blurred vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Phon learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 16, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
She says, “I hope my vision improves so I can return to work to support my family.”
