Dalin is a 35-year-old mother of two from Cambodia. She works in a clothing factory and lives with her husband. Her husband works as a security guard at the same factory. They have one son and one daughter who are both students. In her free time, Dalin likes to listen to music on her phone or help her children with homework.
Two weeks ago, Dalin developed a chalazion, or inflamed cyst in the tear gland, in her right eye that causes her itchiness, irritation, and pain. It is difficult for her to see clearly. Dalin is afraid that she might injure her hands at work because of her poor vision.
Dalin traveled for four hours to seek treatment from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). On July 6th, surgeons at CSC’s care center will remove the cyst through a chalazion excision procedure. After recovery, Dalin’s symptoms should improve. She now needs help raising $210 to fund this procedure.
Dalin shared, “I hope after surgery my eyelid will stop swelling, itchiness, and pain. I need to go to work well.”
