Pheak is a 33-year-old construction worker. He is married and has two daughters who are in elementary school. His wife stays at home to take care of them. When Pheak is not working he enjoys watching boxing matches, listening to the news, and telling stories to his daughters.
Five years ago, the retina of Pheak’s right eye detached, causing him blurred vision and irritation. He has had limited work opportunities due to this condition as well.
When Pheak learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On November 9th, eye surgeons will perform a retinal detachment repair procedure in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $648 procedure.
Pheak said, “I am hopeful that when my vision is better I can work more and support my family well.”
