This is Wai-Linn. He’s a 1-year-old boy from Burma that was born with corneal scarring, rendering him almost completely blind.
His family sought treatment for him immediately after he was born, but after repeatedly borrowing money to pay for his medical bills, they eventually exhausted their options.
Watsi became aware of his plight through Burma Border Projects, and posted his patient profile, where 9 generous strangers collectively donated the $2,000 needed to restore his sight.
Now he is a happy, normal child whose life has forever changed after this procedure, thanks to the Kindness of strangers.
