Ang is a 15-year-old girl from Cambodia who has 2 younger brothers. She enjoys reading books and listening to pop music. She traveled 2 hours with her grandmother to reach Watsi’s medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) for treatment.
Ang was born with congenital strabismus, a condition that causes her eyes to cross inward. She is shy about her appearance, and is also shy around her friends at school. She is currently in 8th grade.
After a squint correction surgery, Ang’s eyes will be realigned correctly. This procedure will cost $264, but unfortunately Ang’s family is not able to afford it. Once she’s had surgery, Ang will be able to return to school and participate with comfort and confidence. Let’s help make it possible!
