Lim is a brave, seven-year-old girl. She has three older sisters, and her parents make and sell palm sugar. In school, Lim is currently in second grade and enjoys to read books. At home, she likes to play with her dolls and draw pictures with her sisters.
Two months ago, Lim developed a chalazion, or inflamed cyst, in her right eye, causing her itchiness, irritation, and tearing. This makes it difficult for her to see clearly and study at school.
Lim traveled for one hour and a half with her father to seek treatment from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). On June 17th, surgeons will remove the cyst through a chalazion excision procedure. After recovery, Lim’s symptoms should improve. She needs help raising $187 to fund this procedure.
Lim is optimistic, “I hope my eye is better and comfortable as soon as possible so I can do well in school and not worry about my eye.”
