Tea Cheng is a 16-year-old student in grade 11. He has two siblings, an older brother, and a younger sister. He lives with his father who is a fisherman. Tea Cheng’s mother passed away when he was only 3-years-old. He likes to play football with his friends when they are not in school.
Tea Cheng has ptosis in his right eye. Ptosis occurs when the eyelid droops over the eye. He feels uncomfortable going to school because his eye looks funny. His friends tease him because of his condition.
Tea Cheng traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On November 25th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform an eyelid correction procedure to improve his vision and restore his self esteem. Now, Tea Cheng’s family needs help to raise $314 to fund this procedure.
His father said, “I want to see his eyelid look like other boys and to see well, so Tea Cheng can go to school.”
