Ma Tin is a 41-year-old mother from Burma. She lives with her husband and three sons in Karen State - an area with conflict and lots of uncertainty and insecurity for the people who live there. Her husband is a day laborer and her three sons are students. Ma Tin is a homemaker but she also sells vegetables sometimes to earn extra money. Her husband’s income is usually enough to cover their basic needs, but they sometimes rely on financial support of their adult children. In her free time, she enjoys playing with her children.
She is currently expecting a baby and her doctors recommend that she deliver via a caesarean section because she started to leak amniotic fluid at 32 weeks. On April 3rd, she experienced pain and the doctor scheduled her to undergo an emergency c-section to ensure the safety of both mother and child.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is helping Ma Tin undergo a C-Section on April 4th at Taw Win Thu Kha Hospital. This procedure will cost $1328, and Ma Tin needs your support.
Ma Tin said, “When I learned that I would need a c-section, I lost hope. I thought about giving birth at home and if I were lucky, I would be able to give birth like before [without complications]. If not, I would die. Now that I was told that there would be donors to help pay for my c-section, I felt so happy. You are a miracle that appeared in my life to help me when I needed it with the cost of my surgery. Thank you so much to all the staff and donors who are willing to help me.”

Ma Tin underwent an emergency caesarean section.
Before her surgery, Ma Tin experienced some leaking of amniotic fluid and pain. She was very worried about her condition along with concerns about the debt she’d incurred during her pregnancy. After the surgery, Ma Tin is now happy, and she is no longer stressed about her situation. She is happy to know that her baby boy is healthy. Now, at home she is helping with cleaning and looking after her baby. She is eager to back to her usual family duties.
As Ma Tin recovers, she will continue looking after her baby and then look for some work doing whatever she can in her village to get some extra income so that she can pay back her earlier debt.
Ma Tin said, “I am blessed to get support from BCMF and the donors. Without your support, I am sure my baby and I would have died. After surgery, the doctor told me that my baby was in the wrong position so that I would not have been able to give birth normally without a c-section. I would like to say thank you very much to BCMF and all of the donors for saving my baby and my life. I will never forget this support for the rest of my life and when my son grows up, I will tell him how lucky he is to have donors who saved him from dying. Now, me and my baby are healthy, and we will pray that all of the donors may stay healthy for their whole lives.”
