Vutha is a 10-year-old student in the fourth grade. His father is a policeman, while is mother cares for him and his siblings. He has four siblings. At school, Vutha enjoys reading the most, but he also works hard at math. When not in class, he and his friends play soccer as much as they can.
Vutha has strabismus in his right eye. Strabismus is a misalignment of the eye caused by injury or dysfunction in the associated nerves and muscles. It is difficult for him to see clearly and study. It is also becoming more difficult for him to play sports with his friends.
Vutha traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On May 25th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform a corrective procedure to align his eyes. Now, Vutha needs help to raise $314 to fund this procedure.
Vutha said, “After surgery I want to see well like my friends. I think I will be even better at reading too when this surgery is done.”
