Sponsorship for Mr. Wong to receive injections
Sponsor Activity: Sponsorship for Mr. Wong to receive injections
Fund Sponsored: $22,000 (for three injections)
Mr. Wong, aged 64, was suffered from Diabetes complicated with retinopathy and a stroke two years ago. Recently, he has been recommended the Anti- VEGF therapy for his eye problem but it was a privately purchased item.
Mr. Wong was a businessman. However, he encountered a great financial hardship and applied bankruptcy. Even though the bankruptcy order was finished, he still owed a lot of money to his friends and business partner. It is also not easy for him to get a job due to his age and health condition. As he could not secure his family’s living, he divorced with his wife and his son left him too.
Currently, he is working as a part time Jewelry craftsman in Shenzhen with around RMB 4,000 per month. The income is just adequate for the basic living.
Luckily with AJR’s help, Mr. Wong is sponsored to receive intravitreal injection of Anti- VEGF for three doses.
