Wai Linn is a 1-year-old boy from Burma who was born with corneal scarring that makes him nearly blind. In very bright light, he can begin to make out objects, but his lack of vision is already stunting his development and worrying his family.
A $2000 surgery can restore Wai Linn’s sight and give him a shot at a normal life, with education and work prospects like anyone else.
Wai Linn’s grandmother is very worried about him. She and his family sought treatment for him immediately after he was born with white cloudy eyes, but after repeatedly borrowing money to pay for his medical bills, they are now running out of options. Watsi’s Medical Partner says, “she is very emotional, and says that she worries he won’t be able to live a normal life.” Let’s help Wai Linn get the medical care he needs to grow up normally.
