about Chit's recovery.

April 3, 2017

Chit is a 50-year-old man who was born in Yangon. He lives with his wife and son in a refugee camp in Thailand.

Two years ago, a fragment of wood injured Chit’s eye. He received treatment and was given eye drops from the medical clinic at the camp. Discomfort returned to his right eye shortly afterwards, and Chit’s eyesight has begun to deteriorate. He is also experiencing headaches and pain.

As a result, he has been unable to continue working as a farm laborer. Although the camp provides food rations, he needs income to buy more food for his family.

During a visit from an eye specialist to the camp, Chit was advised to get a CT scan of his eye. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, has arranged for this to be performed on April 4. The CT scan will cost $414 and will provide detailed information about what is causing Chit’s eye injury. This will assist his doctors in preparing an appropriate treatment plan.

Chit says, “I hope to return to work to provide for my family and also start reading again.”
