Htun is a four year old boy living with 12 other children and a pastor and his wife who are helping to raise them in Tak Province, Thailand. Htun enjoys riding bicycles, watching cartoons, and playing with action figures.
Towards the beginning of April, Htun began experiencing discomfort while walking and when he was sitting down. According to his guardian, whenever Htun begins to feel pain, he will point to where the pain is coming from and cry. Htun has been diagnosed with an inguinal hernia, which will need to be treated with surgery. Fortunately, he was brought to our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, and he is now scheduled for hernia repair surgery on May 31st, at Mae Sot General Hospital.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund Htun’s hernia repair surgery, after which Htun will be able to live a full and healthy life ahead.
“I want to support him as if he were my own child, and I want him to feel like we are his family,” shared the pastor.
