Sing is a 5-year-old boy in kindergarten. He has three brothers and he is the youngest in his family. His parents are garment workers in a local factory that makes t-shirts. When Sing is not in school he likes to play with toy cars with his brothers.
Sing has ptosis in his left eye. Ptosis occurs when the eyelid droops over the eye. He has had this condition since he was born. He feels uncomfortable at school because he can’t read the blackboard, and children make fun of his droopy eyelid.
Sing traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On January 7th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform an eyelid correction procedure to improve his vision. Now, Sing needs help to raise $314 to fund this procedure.
Sing’s mother said: “After surgery, I hope his eyelid looks normal like his brothers. He can go to school, and not be afraid that other children will make fun of him.”
