Sokea is an 11-year-old student who is in the fifth grade. He has one brother and one sister. In his free time, he enjoys reading and playing football. His parents are construction workers.
One year ago, the retina of Sokea’s left eye detached, causing him partial blindness and tearing. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sokea learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three hours with his mother seeking treatment. On June 11th, eye surgeons will perform a retinal detachment repair procedure in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $648 procedure.
Sokea shared, “I hope I can see well so I can study better in school and play with my friends.”
