Rayuth received treatment to improve his vision.

Rayuth’s doctor at Children’s Surgical Centre writes, “After a successful surgery, Rayuth’s eyelid has been corrected. His mother is so happy that when he starts school he won’t be made fun of and he can play and grow like other children. She is so thankful to the doctors for fixing her son’s eye.”

Meet Rayuth, a playful three-year-old boy from Cambodia! Rayuth is the youngest of three children and enjoys playing with his toy cars and eating his favorite food, dried fish.

Rayuth was born with ptosis, a congenital condition that causes a drooping eyelid and makes it very difficult for him to open his eye. “I am so sad because my son’s eyelid droops and it’s hard for him to open it. He is becoming shy around other kids and I do not want him to be” says Rayuth’s mother.

Rayuth needs $290 for a surgery that will lift his eyelid to a more normal level, improving his vision. Let’s raise the funds for Rayuth’s surgery and help him to live a more comfortable and happy life!

Bernard

Bernard is a driver from Kenya. Bernard is a father of 8 children from his two wives. He lives in a rental house and is the main breadwinner in the family. He does not have national insurance nor did he own the vehicle he drove when the road accident occurred. Bernard is a driver in the public transport system, commonly referred to as matatus. On 12th of February 2020, John was involved in a grisly road accident that left 22 people with various injuries. According to Bernard, the oncoming vehicle was overlapping at high speed at a place that is increasingly becoming a blackspot. Bernard and the other patients were brought to Watsi's medical partner care center and immediately started receiving treatment. Bernard had a nail implant on his left femur and a right foot closed reduction and percutaneous pinning that morning. He has been recovering and is planned for a second surgery to correct the acetabular open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF). He is in chronic pain and is not able to move from his bed. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On February 19th, Bernard will undergo a fracture repair procedure called an ORIF. This treatment will help Bernard heal well and be able to walk and eventually work again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,042 to fund this procedure. Bernard says, “I am appealing for help to have the surgery. My family is not able to raise the funds needed. I am however hopeful that soon I will be able to walk.”
