Cheng joined Watsi on September 12th, 2018. 9 other people also joined Watsi on that day! Cheng's most recent donation supported Heh Khu, a boy from Burma, to fund a CT scan.
Cheng has funded healthcare for 2 patients in 2 countries.
Heh Khu is a seven-year-old from Burma. He lives with his parents and five other siblings in Ei Thu Hta village, Hpa-pun Township, Karen State. His parents are farmers. He loves to draw in his free time. When he was one year old, he complained that his right eye was itchy and painful. He then lost vision in his right eye. Doctors want Heh Khu to undergo a CT scan, 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 his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $469 to cover the cost of Heh Khu's CT scan and care, scheduled for March 5. His mother says, "I am sad to see my son in pain and that he cannot see things."
Joshua is a baby from Tanzania. He is the youngest in a family of three kids. Unfortunately, Joshua’s father died when his mother was seven months pregnant with him. His mother has no savings and works as a farmer to support her children. Joshua has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain and increases intracranial pressure. As a result of his condition, Joshua has been experiencing vomiting and regular fevers. Without treatment, Joshua will experience severe physical and developmental delays. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,238 to cover the cost of surgery for Joshua that will treat his hydrocephalus. The procedure is scheduled to take place on August 17 and will drain the excess fluid from Joshua's brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve his quality of life. With proper treatment, Joshua will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young boy. Joshua’s mother says, “Please help my son.”
