Taw is a 43-year-old teacher. She and her husband work at the same Bible school and their daughter is enrolled in that school’s nursery program. In her free time, she enjoys singing and reading with her students. She enjoys growing organic vegetables at home, and growing her own vegetables helps reduce household expenses.

On August 19th, Taw was walking home with part of a banana tree she had just cut down for her family’s dinner. It was drizzling and the dirt road was slippery. She slipped and fell, breaking both bones in her left forearm. She experiences pain that worsens when she moves her arm. She is worried about being admitted to a hospital for surgery, because she has never been admitted to a hospital before.

With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Taw will undergo surgery to reset her fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for August 20th and will cost $1,500. This procedure will help Taw’s arm heal properly. She will no longer be in pain and she will be able to go back to school and look after her daughter.

Taw shared, “I hope this treatment will allow me to go back to work and take care of my daughter again.”
