Jeremy has funded healthcare for 2 patients in 2 countries.
Htet is a three-year-old girl from Burma. She lives with her parents in Bago city, Bago Division. Her father works as a driver, while her mother stays at home to take care of her. As Htet grew, her head kept getting larger and larger. It has become so enlarged that Htet is unable to turn her head from side to side, let alone hold it up. Because of this condition, Htet is behind in meeting her developmental milestones. Now, Htet is three years old, she has not spoken, and she is unable to walk or even crawl. Doctors want Htet 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 her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $469 to cover the cost of Htet's CT scan and care, scheduled for November 5. Her father says, "I hope that everything is going well with my daughter."
Samson is a student from Tanzania. He is the youngest in a family of four. Samson sustained burns from touching an electrical wire when he was younger. He has very little functional mobility due to extensive contractures. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Samson receive treatment. On November 5, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help him use two of his fingers. Now, he needs help to fund this $608 procedure.
