Phan is a 47-year-old rice farmer. She’s divorced and lives with her two sons and two daughters. She often stays at home, and enjoys listening to the news on the radio in her free time.
Two years ago, Phan developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision. She only sees shadows and has difficulty performing her daily routine. With increasingly poor vision, she is unable to go to the rice field to work.
When Phan learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for eight hours seeking treatment. On December 9th, 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.
Phan shared, “I hope after surgery I will see better. I can go back to planting rice and earn money to support my children.”
