November 6, 2018

Ma Chi is a 13-year-old student from Thailand. She lives with her family in Mae Pa, Mae Sot District. Ma Chit loves to study and play with her sisters in her free time.

About two months ago, Ma Chi played football at school. The next morning, she woke up with blurry vision and with a swollen right eye. She also had slight pain in her right eye. Thinking it was not a big problem, she went to school as usual. A week later, her left eye also became red, swollen, and painful. Currently, Ma Chi feels very uncomfortable and is unable to fully open both of her eyes. She sometimes has headaches and experiences spells of dizziness.

Doctors want Ma Chi to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Ma Chi’s CT scan and care, scheduled for November 6.

Her mother says, “My husband and I often think about our daughter’s eye condition at night and we sometimes cannot sleep.”

Ma Chi says, “I want to become an engineer when I grow up. I want to build my own house.”
