Srey Ty is a 27-year-old garment worker from Cambodia. She is divorced and has a 6-year-old daughter. She lives with her parents and daughter in Prey Veng province and works in a local factory to support her daughter and her elderly parents. When she is free, she likes to watch movies or take walks with her daughter.
About a month ago, Srey Ty developed a chalazion in her left eye, causing her itchiness, irritation, and redness. A chalazion is an inflamed cyst in a patient’s tear gland. It is difficult for her to work and has missed some work days, reducing her income.
Srey Ty traveled for three hours to seek treatment from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre. On April 28th, surgeons will remove the cyst through a chalazion excision procedure. After recovery, Srey Ty’s symptoms should improve. She needs help raising $210 to fund this procedure.
She shared: “I hope after surgery my eyelid will no longer be swollen and I won’t worry about it. I can go back to work to support my family.”
