Nita is an 18-month-old girl from Cambodia. She has one older sister and her parents are rice farmers. She enjoys playing with her doll at home.
Nita has ptosis on her right eye. Ptosis occurs when the eyelid droops over the eye. Her parents are feeling uncomfortable about her appearance. The neighbors always call her “Miss Lid Drop” and that makes her parents feel worried about her eye in the future and their daughter’s self esteem. They want her to grow up healthy, confident, and happy.
Nita traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On April 29, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform an eyelid correction procedure to improve her vision. Now, Nita needs help to raise $292 to fund this procedure.
“I hope that my daughter’s eyelid will be better after surgery, so when she goes to school she can grow up happily,” Nita’s mother said.
