Phan is a 59-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has one son, two daughters, and one grandchild. He is living with one of his daughters, and enjoys watching the boxing channel and news on television.
One year ago, the retina of Phan’s left eye detached, causing him vision loss leading to partial blindness. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Phan learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 29th, eye surgeons will perform a retinal detachment repair procedure in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $648 procedure.
“Because of my vision loss in the past year, I could not do anything to support my wife and children. I hope my surgery will be done so I can see everything clearly again. Then I will go to plant rice and find more money for my family,” Phan said.
