Linn, the 1-year-old boy from Burma whose medical
care you funded on
received surgery to treat his congenital corneal scarring and help restore his
Wai Linn's surgery went well and
he is adapting to his improved vision with gusto. His mother reports that when
Wai Linn first returned from the
hospital she would constantly catch him staring at his hands and playing with
them. He is now able to see his toys and grab them when they fall, and is always
wandering around and exploring.
Our medical partner shared this photo of Wai
Linn and his grandmother at a follow-up appointment. When
Wai Linn saw her for the first
time after surgery, his eyes lit up and he kept touching her face, excited as he
could see her clearly for the first time.
Wai Linn's mother says that she
is so grateful to see how much her son's condition has improved and that it brings
great joy to their family to watch him play and experience things for the first
time. She is so excited that he will be able to attend school when he is older, and
grow up as a happy healthy child.
People helping people is a beautiful thing. Thank you for spreading the health on
