Makara is a girl from Cambodia. She likes to listen to music, watch TV, and read books. She also likes to play with her two sisters.
Makara was born with scoliosis, which is progressing with age and making it difficult to sit in school for long periods. It is also causing a lot of discomfort. Surgery can help correct the position of her spine and prevent further worsening of the condition.
The procedure is scheduled for January 23 and will cost $1,500.
Her mother says, “I hope that after the surgery, she will feel better, look better, and no longer have pain or trouble breathing.”
