PhanNai is a seventh-grade student from Cambodia. She likes painting and reading Khmer literature, and hopes to become a doctor when she grows up.
Five months ago, PhanNai developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her vision loss. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When PhanNai learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 23, doctors will perform a lensectomy 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.
Her mother says, “I hope that my daughter’s surgery is successful so she is able to see again and I won’t have to worry about her.”
