Leng received surgery to correct strabismus (a condition causing one eye to be physically misaligned).

The operation, known as a squint correction, went very well! Leng’s impairment has been corrected and her vision is already improved. She reports that work in the garment factory has become easier for her since the operation. Leng also no longer feels embarrassed when having conversations.

When asked to sum up how she’s feeling, Leng simply says, “Perfect, thank you!”

Leng, a 30-year-old mother from Cambodia, noticed something wrong with her vision about a year ago.

Diagnosed with strabismus, Leng suffers from a condition that causes one of her eyes to be physically misaligned. This impairment has hurt both Leng’s vision and confidence – she says it’s become hard to have conversation with anyone without feeling embarrassed by her eye.

An employee of a garment factory, Leng prides herself on her skills as a seamstress, and enjoys making clothes for herself and her family in her spare time.

Leng’s surgery, a procedure known as a squint correction, would cost $250. It would correct her impairment, restoring Leng’s sight and self-confidence.

Eh

Eh is a 22-year-old woman from Thailand. She was born and lives her parents and younger brother in Mae La Refugee Camp. Her younger brother studies at the bible school at the camp. Eh used to attend the same school as a third-year student, but she had to stop studying when her health deteriorated. Eh's father is a homemaker, and her mother works for the department of health at the camp. In 2017, Eh started to become more tired and began to have difficulty breathing. Her mother took her to the clinic in the camp and the doctor listened to her heart, did an electrocardiogram (ECG) and told Eh’s mother that Eh has a heart disease. She was then referred to Mae Sot Hospital (MSH) for further investigation. Eh was not told anything about her condition, and the doctor only informed her parents without telling her. Eh had an echocardiogram (echo) at MSH in December 2018. After the echo, she travelled back and forward several times from Mae La refugee camp to MSH for medical follow-up visits. Finally, the doctor at MSH informed her that she needs surgery. Currently, Eh has dizziness, headaches, tiredness and sometimes experiences difficulty breathing. She sleeps well but has lost her appetite and she sometimes suffers from chest pain. She loves reading and playing football and volleyball in her free time. Eh was born with ventricular septal defect, a cardiac condition in which a hole exists between the two lower chambers of the heart. Blood leaks through this hole without first passing through his lungs to obtain oxygen, leaving him sick and short of breath. Eh is scheduled to undergo heart surgery on October 5th to correct her condition and improve her quality of life. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Eh's procedure and care. Eh said, “All my classmate graduated, and I want to as well, but I am tired of studying and when I think about this, I cry”.
