Thi is a playful 3-year-old toddler from Cambodia. He loves to eat pork fried rice, play with toy cars, and spend time with his family! His father is in the army, and his mother stays home to look after Thi and his two older siblings.
Thi is experiencing a condition called strabismus in both eyes. Strabismus is a misalignment of the eye that is caused by injury or dysfunction in the eye’s associated nerves and muscles. Without treatment, the condition can lead to issues with depth perception and double vision.
Thi’s family traveled to our medical partner’s care center so he can receive treatment. On March 1st, surgeons will perform a corrective procedure to align Thi’s eyes. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), is requesting $331 to fund this procedure.
Thi’s dad shared: “I want my son to start school and have good vision.”
