Sary is a bright 10-year-old student. She’s in grade five in school and has one younger brother. Her father is a policeman, and her mother is a housewife. In her free time, she enjoys drawing pictures and reading books.
About a week ago, Sary developed a chalazion, or an inflamed cyst in the tear gland of her left eye. The chalazion causes her pain, swelling, and redness. It is difficult for her to see clearly and go to school. She feels embarrassed by her condition and that other children make fun of how her eye looks.
Fortunately, our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is helping Sary receive treatment. On January 10th, surgeons will remove the cyst through a chalazion excision procedure. After recovery, Sary’s symptoms should improve. Now, she and her family need help raising $187 to fund her procedure and care.
Sary shared, “I hope after surgery my eye gets well, and I can attend school without being ashamed of how my eye looks.”
