Phalla is a 54-year-old who is married and has three sons. All her boys are in public school. She lives with her family and her husband, who is a construction worker. When she is not busy cooking, she likes to watch movies on TV.
Four years ago, Phalla developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her light sensitivity and blurry vision. It is becoming hard for her to use the stove to cook because she cannot see well.
When Phalla learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled far for six and a half hours over many dirt roads seeking treatment. On December 15th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract 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 $229 procedure.
“I hope after surgery I will have good eyesight,” says Phalla, “I can then take care of my children, take my children to school, and can do more housework to help out.”
