Nyunt is a 45-year-old man from a village in Burma. He is married and has six children. He is a subsistence farmer who grows rice and betel nut. His wife and oldest daughter work in Bangkok and send money home. In February 2016, Nyunt began experiencing stabbing pain in his abdomen and in his back. He also developed a distended abdomen. He visited a local hospital, where he was given medication. Unfortunately, this did not relieve his condition. A medic recommended he seek care with our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund. Nyunt is now scheduled for a CT scan on March 18. This procedure will give his doctors more information about the cause of his abdominal pain, allowing them to plan for further care. Nyunt needs $414 to pay for the scan. Let's help him begin getting better!
Eduardo is a 13-year-old boy from Guatemala. He lives with his parents and nine siblings. He loves playing with his brothers and sisters and enjoys listening to music. Eduardo was born with microcephaly, a condition in which the brain develops unusually small and causes various developmental abnormalities. As a result, Eduardo experiences seizures that prevent him from being able to walk on his own. When he was younger, his family carried him on their backs to go to medical appointments. However, now that he is older and bigger, they are unable to carry him. Through our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq (WK), Eduardo will receive a wheelchair on February 28. WK is asking for $1,034 to cover the cost of the wheelchair. This wheelchair will make the world accessible for Eduardo.
