Kyaw Zin is a ten-year-old student from Thailand. He lives with his parents in Mae Taung, Mae Sot, Tak Province.
Three years ago, Kyaw Zin began to experience blurry vision. These symptoms have made it increasingly difficult for him to see clearly. Kyaw Zin was diagnosed with retinal detachment, a condition in which the retina pulls away from the supportive tissue in the eye, resulting in vision loss. If left untreated, he could lose vision completely.
Kyaw Zin is scheduled to undergo surgery to reattach his retina on October 25. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care. After surgery, Kyaw Zin’s vision will hopefully be restored, and he will resume his daily activities comfortably.
Kyaw Zin said, “I want to see my parents clearly. I want to play with my brother and I also want to go back to school.”
