Bona is a fun-loving two-year-old boy. He lives with his two older sisters and his parents, who are both garment workers. Bona is too young for school, but he plays with his sisters and their friends every day.
Bona has ptosis in his right eye. Ptosis occurs when the eyelid droops over the eye. This condition makes it difficult for him to see, and he often feels uncomfortable playing with other children.
Bona’s family traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On June 15th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform an eyelid correction procedure to improve his vision. Now their family needs help to raise $314 to fund this procedure.
Bona’s mother shared, “I hope that this surgery can help him be ready for school, and make it easier for him to read in the future. I also want him to play easily and make friends.”
