Phay is a loving grandmother from Cambodia. She had one daughter and four sons. Sadly, she and her husband lost all their children during the Khmer Rouge regime. Now she lives with her grandson who is a car mechanic. Phay enjoys listening to the monks preaching on the radio.
Two years ago, Phay developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her itchiness, photophobia, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Phay learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours with her grandson seeking treatment. On January 20th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Phay said, “I hope I can see well after my surgery so I can take care of my great-grandchildren, do some housework to help out, and get around more by myself.”
