Chai is a 14-year-old boy from Burma. He lives with his family.
Chai has poor vision, and he depends on his mother to look after him. He had to drop out of school because his vision is blurry.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund lens replacement surgery for Chai. On May 16, doctors will perform a lens replacement, during which they will remove Chai’s natural lenses and replace them with an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $1,500 procedure.
“I would like to go back to school and one day become a primary school teacher,” said Chai.
