Sina is a 44-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She is married and has two daughters, both high school students. When she and her husband have a break from the rice fields, they like to watch movies and the local news on TV.
Around five months ago, Sina developed a chalazion in her right eye, causing her pain and swelling. A chalazion is an inflamed cyst in a patient’s tear gland. It is difficult for her to work and be outside.
Sina traveled for six and a half hours to seek treatment from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre. On March 6th, surgeons will remove the cyst through a chalazion excision procedure. After recovery, Sina’s symptoms should improve. She needs help raising $210 to fund this procedure.
Sina said, “I hope after surgery my eye lid stop swollen and back to normal eye I can go to plant crop well and don’t worry about it anymore.”
