Adelyn Koh, 11, has only limited vision. She had four cornea transplant operations, but all of them failed when her body rejected the transplants.

Now, she has a chance to see, with a new surgical technique, which costs $40,000 per eye.

But her mother, a divorcee who earns only $1,500 a month as a student-care teacher, cannot afford it.

To raise money for the operation, Adelyn, who plays the piano, has composed four pieces of music, now being sold as a CD.

Just wondering where are all the millionaires that are supposed to be living in Singapore.

I'm certain that a couple of thousands from each millionaires would have help this poor child with her medical bills.

So, kind hearted Singaporean, PRs and FTs ... have a heart .. show your compassion, drop a penny or two and help this fellow human being for a brighter future.

Anyone ??
