Danai is a boy from Cambodia. He has not yet started school, and in his free time he really enjoys playing with toys and watching the television. He is six years old and was born with a condition that causes his arm to grow abnormally. Fortunately, Danai will undergo a nerve and tendon procedure on February 13 to repair the condition. Danai traveled four hours for his surgery in hopes that it will allow him to be able to participate in daily activities, such as playing with his two other siblings and taking care of himself. His family needs help raising $497 to fund this procedure. His mother says, "I hope that after my son's surgery, he will be able to feed himself, take care of himself, help around the house, and participate in normal activities."
Linn Thu is a 18-year-old boy from Burma. He lives with his grandparents, parents, and two younger brothers. In his free time, Linn Thu likes to visit his friends and listen to music. Linn Thu was diagnosed with a heart condition that involves a malformation of the mitral valve, the valve between the left atrium and left ventricle. This valve controls the flow of blood, but certain conditions may cause blood to flow backward or the valve to narrow. Currently, Linn Thu feels tired and experiences chest pain. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund a mitral valve replacement for Linn Thu. The treatment is scheduled to take place on February 22 and, once completed, will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably. “I would like to get a good job to earn a living after I recover,” says Linn Thu.
Salman is a young boy from Kenya. He is a happy and curious boy. Salman’s parents are pastoralists and live in the North Eastern region of Kenya. He is the second born of three children. Salman was born with hypospadias, a congenital abnormality that causes urinary dysfunction. Without treatment, he will continue to experience uncomfortable symptoms and will be at risk of infertility. Fortunately, Salman is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on January 23. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $700 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care. “I do not know what I will do should my nephew gets assistance. It will be an answered prayer for me and for his parents,” says Salman’s uncle.
