Meng Sry is a 53-year-old tailor. He’s married and his wife is also a tailor. Together they have two daughters who are both in school. In his free time, Meng Sry enjoys listening to music on his phone and watching the news.
Five months ago, Meng Sry developed a chalazion in his left eye, causing him burning, itchiness, irritation. A chalazion is an inflamed cyst in a patient’s tear gland. Thus, it is difficult for him to see clearly, making tailor work impossible for him.
Meng Sry traveled to seek treatment from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). On July 23rd, surgeons will remove the cyst through a chalazion excision procedure. After recovery, Meng Sry’s symptoms should improve. Now, CSC is requesting $187 to fund this procedure.
Meng Sry shares, “I hope after surgery my eye irritation stops so I can feel comfortable and be able to help my wife with housework and preparing clothes in our tailor shop again.”
