San is a 13-year-old student from Cambodia with one younger sister. He is a seventh grader at the public primary school where Khmer and English are his favorite subjects. He likes drinking soft drinks and shared that he wants to become an engineer when he grows up.
When he was born, San developed congenital entropion of his eyelids. This means that his eyelids turn inward, causing his eyelashes to scrape the surface of his eyes. It is difficult for him to open his eyes, and he feels uncomfortable with his appearance when he goes outside his home or anywhere with other people
San traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On April 30th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform a corrective procedure to repair his eyelids. Now, San needs help to raise $225 to fund this procedure.
“I hope that my son’s surgery will be successful and he can go to school and travel anywhere happily,” San’s mother said.
