Win

Win is a 23-year-old man who lives with his family in Myawaddy, Burma. Win recently broke his right leg in a car accident. He was driving to the tea shop with his friend on his motorcycle when the car behind him braked suddenly. A car driving over the speed limit did not see the car in front of him break, causing him to hit the car and spin into Win’s motorcycle. Win was knocked unconscious right away. Win was taken to hospital by a free volunteer ambulance, where he received emergency care. He broke both his femur and his tibia in his right leg. He also had a large cut on his forehead and chin and abrasions on his back. Although his leg was badly broken, Win did not receive treatment for it at the hospital because his family could not afford the cost. Instead he was taken to another clinic, where he received painkillers. He was then referred to our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF). Win’s accident has put a strain on his family and their household income. Before his accident, Win worked with his mom selling vegetables and clothes. Their household income was enough to cover their daily costs. However, since the accident, his mother has stayed with him at the hospital. Our medical partner, BCMF, is requesting $1,500 to fund Win’s leg surgery. This will cover Win’s surgery, a seven night hospital stay, all medication, supplies, and aftercare. Win says, "I just want to get better so that I can contribute to my family’s income. I would like to continue helping my mother sell vegetables or find any job with a good income”.
