Weʼre raising £5,000 to pay for an operation for Sophia Savillaga who has a tumour on her left eye

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

My friend Sophia Savillaga is 16 and she has had this large tumour on her left eye for many years.

She was born with the condition and it has become much worse over time. Her father died when she was 12 and her mother has never been able to afford to take her to the doctors for the treatment.

The tumour has not spread to other parts of her body and most of the the time she covers her face with her hair. But we hope to raise enough money to send her to a specialist in Manila who will provide an operation for her.

She's only 16 so it's not too late for her to be fixed and have a normal life. We don't want it to get any worse than it is.

    Thank you so much to everyone who has donated to help Sophia! We will start to make plans for her to visit the doctor to have her situation assessed again and make an operation. We will keep everybody updated! Here is a short video of Sophia and her cousin Ella saying thank you to everybody for being so very kind. Thank you!
