Sopheak is an eighth-grade student from Cambodia. He has one older brother, and his favorite subject in school is mathematics.
Sopheak has strabismus in both eyes. Strabismus is a misalignment of the eye caused by injury or dysfunction in the associated nerves and muscles. It is difficult for him to see straight and he does not have any confidence at school.
Sopheak traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On August 13, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform a corrective procedure to align his eyes. Now, Sopheak needs help to raise $292 to fund this procedure.
He says, “I hope that after my surgery I will be able to see straight, and I will no longer be shy around my friends.”
