Kham

Meet Kham, an eight-year-old boy from Thailand who loves to paint and enjoys learning English. Currently, Kham has very blurry vision out of his right eye and has been diagnosed with a detached retina, meaning that the retina has separated from the back of the eye. Burma Border Projects, our medical partner, writes that “without surgery, blindness may result. He has already lost vision in his left eye due to retinal detachment so it's imperative for his future wellbeing he have the surgery.” "Kham grew up in Burma but moved to Thailand a year and a half ago when his family made the decision to leave in search of better work opportunities. His parents are day laborers and earn a very low income of $20 a day between them. They have spent all their savings and have gone into debt trying to raise money for his medical treatment for his left eye in vain.” Kham has stopped schooling in order to get treatment, and though his parents are worried, “they are very hopeful that the surgery to fix his right eye will be a success and will secure him a brighter future." "With treatment, Kham's vision in his right eye will be fully or partially restored. Kham is looking forward to seeing clearly out of his right eye and returning to school. He understands that he has already missed out on a lot of school and will be behind. However, he is very determined to catch up with the class!" For $1500, Kham can get retinal reattachment surgery that will help him see clearly again.
