Cari joined Watsi on May 8th, 2019. 14 other people also joined Watsi on that day! Cari's most recent donation supported Kyaw Myat, a young boy from Burma, to fund a CT scan.
Cari has funded healthcare for 2 patients in 2 countries.
Kyaw Myat is a five-year-old boy from Burma. He lives with his family in a village in Sagaing Division. Kyaw Myat’s father is a subsistence farmer and sometimes he also works as a day laborer on other villagers’ farms. His mother is a homemaker and takes care of Kyaw Myat’s brother at home. Kyaw Myat received a shunt, throught the help of Watsi, for his hydrocephalus. Because he was also diagnosed with an abnormal growth in his head, and the mass is putting pressure on an artery in his head, it affected his ability to walk properly. Currently, Kyaw Myat cannot walk properly and sometimes, he complains that he has a headache and watery eyes. Doctors want Kyaw Myat 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 Kyaw Myat's CT scan and care, scheduled for August 23. Kyaw Myat father said, "I was told that they want a CT scan to check my son's condition. I am very worried because they just asked for it before surgery and I am afraid there might be a bad outcome."
Ntegyerize is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She is married with three children. Ntegyerize has had a swelling on her right breast for three years. She traveled to our medical partner's care center to receive treatment. On May 2, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Ntegyerize needs help to raise $187 to fund this procedure. Ntegyerize says, “I hope to get well after surgery and I continue with farming and breastfeed my child.”
