Win underwent fracture repair surgery so she can walk again and return to supporting her children.

Win’s surgery was a success! She is happy to report that she no longer experiences swelling or pain in her leg, and she is able to sleep and eat easily again. Win currently uses crutches to get around and will soon be able to walk without them.

She shared: “I am happy that I received support from BCMF, and I would like to say thank you to all of the donors and the BCMF organization. When I am fully recovered, I will find new work in Mae Sot. I will try to work to pay back my debt and support my children’s education”.

Win is a 34-year-old mother of two from Thailand. She works as an agricultural day laborer to support her two children who live with her relative.

Last month, Win was walking down the stairs in front of her home when she suddenly slipped and fell. This fall caused a fracture of her lower right leg, preventing her from both standing up and straightening her right leg. She first tried to treat herself with traditional medicine, but when she saw no improvement, she sought medical attention at a clinic. Win’s lower right leg is currently swollen and in a lot of pain. She cannot straighten it nor put any weight on it. Because of the pain, she is experiencing difficulty sleeping and a loss of appetite. To get around, she is using a wheelchair provided by the clinic.

With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Win will undergo surgery to reset her fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The treatment is scheduled for August 5th and will cost $1,500. This procedure will help her walk again and return to work to support her children.

She said, “I felt very happy when I learned that an organization will support the cost of my surgery. I am very thankful to all the donors and the organization for their support.”
