Thearen is a 20-year-old woman from Cambodia. She has two sisters and one brother, and enjoys watching Khmer dramas on television in her free time.
Thearen has strabismus in both eyes. Strabismus is a misalignment of the eye caused by injury or dysfunction in the associated nerves and muscles. It is difficult for her to see clearly, and she lacks confidence around her friends.
Thearen traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 5th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform a corrective procedure to align her eyes. Now, Thearen needs help to raise $314 to fund this procedure.
“I hope that my eyes will be able to see straight and clearly again, and I can go to work and sell food at the market,” she shared.
