Phal is a 79-year-old fortune teller. He is married and has five daughters and 12 grandchildren. Phal’s wife passed away 10 years ago, and now he lives with his eldest daughter. At home, he enjoys reading books and listening to the radio.
Six years ago, Phal developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him sensitivity to light, blurry vision, and sometimes tearing. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Phal learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled there hoping for treatment. On July 5th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Phal shared, “I hope after surgery my eye can see well so I can go outside and plant some vegetables around my house.”
