Bulakison is a farmer from Malawi. He recently traveled to our medical partner’s care center, Kabudula Community Hospital. Kabudula is a rural community outside of the capital city of Lilongwe. The health catchment area serves roughly 350,000 people, but the health centers and the hospital are often poorly stocked and staffed.  One of Bulakison’s teeth has been causing him bothersome symptoms. Diet is an issue for dental health in Malawi, where sugarcane is prevalent. Also, there is little to no oral health education in Malawi and limited access to a dental professional. In fact, there are fewer than 20 dentists across the country. Fortunately, a visiting dentist will perform a dental extraction. A dental extraction is a simple procedure with few risks, and it will result in a significant reduction in his symptoms. Bulakison is scheduled to undergo treatment on July 18. Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, is requesting just $28 to fund the procedure.

Sarin is a 62-year-old man from Cambodia who is married and has four daughters, six sons, and 30 grandchildren. He works as a corn and vegetable farmer. In his free time, Sarin likes to watch boxing on TV and listen to the news on the radio. About two years ago, Sarin developed a cataract in each eye, which has caused him to experience blurred vision, extreme sensitivity to light, and cloudy lenses. As a result, it is difficult for him to see things clearly, recognize faces, work, and go anywhere on his own. Our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre, is requesting $398 to fund a phaco procedure and an intraocular lens implant for each of Sarin's eyes. The surgery is scheduled to take place on July 4 and, once completed, will hopefully restore Sarin's vision to its former state and allow him to live more comfortably.

Mengly is a 36-year-old farmer from Cambodia. He has three brothers and two sisters. In his free time, Mengly likes to learn how to repair motorbikes, listen to music, and go on Facebook. In February, Mengly fell out of a tree at a height of about 15 meters, which caused fractures of his spine and right ankle. He went to Thailand where doctors performed an open reduction and internal fixation procedure on his ankle, stabilizing the fracture with hardware in order to promote healing. As it is difficult and painful for Mengly to walk, surgical removal of the hardware has been recommended. Our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre, is requesting $214 to cover the cost of Mengly's hardware removal. The procedure is scheduled to take place on June 29 and, once completed, will hopefully help Mengly walk comfortably again.
