Eyes for Chinese Orphan, Theo

Hello, Theo is a 13 yr old boy, living in an orphanage in China. He suffers from partial blindness in both eyes.He is in need of surgery during his host time here in the US from Dec- Jan. Please consider making a donation to his surgery fund that will last a lifetime. The gift of sight is truly magnificent, and you can make this dream a reality for Theo! He is blind due to a white casse over the cornea of right eye- cannot see things- only shadows, a white  cotton shaped casse of the left eye- can see things. ALSO 1.Keratoleukoma  of right eye 2. Obsolete rainbow tracing inflammation 3. Congential Nystagmus of both eyes. Surgery is estimated $8,00-11,000 with out insurance (which he does not have). 

 He has lived in the orphanage his entire life.The day he turns 14 , his hope for a forever family flickers out. The reality is, when the children in these programs reach this age, this is often the end of the line. For more fortunate children 14 and older, they are allowed to stay on and work at the orphanage . They work as they watch their younger friends get adopted, knowing that a forever family is now a permanent impossibility for them. For the unlucky children that age out, they are turned out of the orphanage, and sent to look for work. In many cases, the children who reach 14 are simply never heard from again.For more info about what it means to age out please visit: http://orphanhosting.com/what-it-means-to-age-out/ 

According to ArkofHopeforChildren.org the average age of these exploited children are between 14 and 16, with the average life span being only 3 to 7 years!  For more information in human trafficking please visit their website at:  http://arkofhopeforchildren.org/child-trafficking/child-trafficking-statistics
