Phorn is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has three sisters. She enjoys tending to her farm and spending time with her family.
One year ago, Phorn developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her irritation, itchiness, tearing, and a clouded lens. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Phorn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On August 6, doctors will perform phacoemulsification 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 $211 procedure.
She says, “I hope my vision is clear so I can continue my work at the farm.”
