Kyaw

Kyaw is a 37-year-old man who lives with his wife in a village in Tak Province, Thailand. He has two daughters that they support and who live with their maternal aunt in Burma. His wife is an agricultural day laborer while Kyaw has been a homemaker for the past two years. Unfortunately, his wife has been unable to find work for the past two months, due to COVID-19 restrictions. Even when she was working, the income she earned was not enough to cover their basic necessities and sometimes they would have to purchase items from the shop on credit. In 2013, Kyawa was injured in a car accident that took his brother's life. His doctors implanted a steel rod to repair his fractured left leg. He was told that he would need to have the steel removed in three to six years. Recently, Kyaw started experiencing pain in his left leg again. He traveled to Mae Sot Hospital to have the steel removed so that his leg could finish healing properly. Our medical parter, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to cover the cost of his surgery. A surgery that will alleviate his pain and enable him to walk again. Now, we are asking for your help in funding Kyaw's life-changing treatment. Kyaw shared, “I am very upset about my leg. I want to work like other people but because of my condition no one will offer me a job. I'm also worried about my wife and daughters' future. As a father I want to fulfill their needs which I can’t at present. Instead I rely on my wife's income. If the surgery doesn't help to improve my condition, I'm worried that my leg will be amputated. My wife is also worried that my condition will worsen, but she urges me to be strong and accept our fate.”
