Naw Khu underwent a CT scan to diagnose and help heal her condition.

Naw Khu received a CT scan in order to help doctors diagnose her condition and create a proper treatment plan. According to the CT scan results, Naw Khu has a number of ovarian cysts, but she was relieved when the doctors shared that they are still small enough that she does not need surgery. A midwife gave her medication that will help decrease the size of the cysts, in turn minimizing her chances of needing surgery. Naw Khu and her mother were extremely happy and are optimistic about the future.

Naw Khu’s mother said, “I am so happy that I can’t express with any word. I thank God for helping my daughter. In the past, I could not sleep and cried every night seeing my daughter suffered from poor health. I have no money to give for my daughter’s treatment cost. I am so appreciative for your help. I will always remember you in my prayers. God bless all of the donors and the Burma Children Medical Fund staff who helped my daughter and may God fulfill all your needs.”

Naw Khu is a 25-year-old woman from Burma. She lives with her parents and two brothers in a village. Naw Khu is a homemaker, while the rest of her family works as farmers growing beans and nuts on their land. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and the Burmese military takeover, Naw Khu’s family has had difficulty selling their crops.

In early September 2021, Naw Khu started to experience edema in her whole body, and especially in her face, legs, and hands. Her abdomen has also become enlarged and she has experienced a loss of appetite. She has had abnormal bleeding and feels tired when walking long distances. At night, she often has a fever and has difficulty sleeping.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), is helping Naw Khu receive treatment. On December 9th, she will undergo a CT scan, or a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan. Now, Naw Khu needs help raising $414 to cover the cost of Naw Khu’s CT scan and care.

Naw Khu shared, “sometimes I want to give up, but I feel bad for my mother. She tries very hard to help me. She spends all her time with me. I feel sorry for her.”

Abraham

Abraham is a 27-year-old farmer from Kenya. He is a happy and joyful man who loves smiling. Abraham is married with two sons aged six and three years. He also does construction work when he can find jobs on local building projects. His wife sells secondhand clothes at the local markets around. Abraham and his family live in a rental house which has two rooms. He works hard but it has been difficult to earn a living and pay his monthly bills. Earlier last year, Abraham was among the people who got sponsorship from the county to study in technical training institutes. He is almost done with his studies and will soon be able to work toward a better job. Abraham arrived at the hospital on Saturday afternoon with right lower limb pain. On physical examination, his lower limb had bruises and it was swollen to the knee. After the examination, the clinician recommended an x-ray and the results revealed that Abraham had sustained a fracture of the upper end of tibia and fibula. The Orthopedic surgeon met him and recommends that he undergo surgery. Abraham has no medical insurance coverage, and he is now appealing to all well-wishers to help him in order to get his surgery. Abraham shared that he was hit by a tree while cutting it down. He cannot walk easily and more and has a lot of pain and swelling. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 27th, Abraham will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. After surgery Abraham will be able to continue with his studies, and he will no longer have pain. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1145 to fund this procedure. Abraham says, “I cannot walk without support. I am really worried because of my family. Kindly help me so that I may be able to get back to them and offer them my support.”
