Phum is a mother of seven from Cambodia. She is a rice farmer. She has two daughters, five sons, and five grandchildren. She enjoys going to the local pagoda.
About two years, Phum developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her eye strain, pain, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Phum learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 13, doctors will perform a small incision cataract 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 want to be able to help my husband to feed the cows and do our farming work.”
