Ma Aye is a 57-year-old grandmother who lives in a small village in Burma. She has seven adult children and three grandchildren. Her husband passed away ten years ago, so she now lives with her daughter and son-in-law. The family grows rice and livestock on their farm, which provides enough food to eat, but brings in very little money for other necessities.
Recently, Ma Aye was diagnosed with a large, painful mass in her uterus. The growth is pressing on her bladder, causing intense discomfort and sapping her energy. The situation has become so bad that Ma Aye is having difficulty completing her daily tasks. Ma Aye says she “wants to see her grandchildren grow and help take care of them.”
For $880, we can remove this mass via a hysterectomy and improve Ma Aye’s quality of life. This surgery will enable Ma Aye to get back to living a productive and full life.
