“I hope my son will be without pain after his surgery,” shares Theara’s mother. Theara is a two-year-old boy who lives in Cambodia with his parents and sister. He likes drawing pictures and watching TV.
Recently, though, it has been hard for him to enjoy even these favorite activities. Theara has a hydrocele, or build-up of fluid, in his right testicle, which causes him frequent pain. Theara’s mother says he cries often, and it distresses her that there is nothing she can do to console him.
Theara’s mother traveled with him for three hours to the Children’s Surgical Centre, Watsi’s medical partner in Cambodia, to seek treatment.
Theara’s family cannot afford to pay for the surgery he needs. $99 covers Theara’s operation, medications, and three post-operative check-ups with doctors to ensure that he is healing properly.
