​Toddler robbed of eyesight

​At three years of age, a child is usually very curious about everything in life and is at his most active.

Bongre Anton Peter however, is a three-year-old that has been robbed of this opportunity.

He has been living with a cancerous growth around his eye for two years now.

"He used to see with both eyes, but the growth around his right eye has completely blocked off his sight in that eye," said mother, Sinto Peter.

"It doesn't pain a lot but it passes pus and blood," she said.

This is a factor behind Bongre's low blood supply, which has also forced the toddler to be less active.

The boy and his parents are currently in Port Moresby seeking medical help.

He has so far undergone an ultrasound scan and two CT scans, one for his eye and the other for his brain, at the Pacific International Hospital.

A team, including lawyer Greg Sheppard and Simbu Children's Foundation, are helping Bongre seek the necessary help he needs.

The team has opened a trust account for him.

Anyone willing to make a donation for young Bongre can do so through Young & Williams Lawyers - Trust Account, Bank South Pacific, Commercial Centre, Gordon, Port Moresby
