Promise is a mother of two. She and her husband were teachers before the COVID-19 pandemic, which cost them their jobs. They are currently earning their living through farming. The family lives in a double-roomed rental house in a nearby town.

The couple is expecting their third child. Promise has been attending antenatal care visits at Nyakibale Hospital. During one of her visits, the doctor recommended a caesarian section to prevent complications that may occur in a vaginal delivery. Promise is not in a financial position to cater for the surgery and is seeking for financial assistance.

Promise says, “My hope is I will deliver my baby safely. I also hope to continue teaching once schools reopen.”

Daw Tin

Daw Tin is a strong, hardworking 60-year-old woman from Burma who enjoys cleaning her home, visiting her local Buddhist temple, meditating, and praying. She lives on her own and supports herself by working as a day laborer, herding goats and collecting firewood to sell. However, her siblings have been supporting her since her recent injury because she is unable to work. This past May, Daw Tin stepped on a nail protruding from a wooden board while herding her neighbor’s goats. Over time, the wound on her right heel turned into a painful ulcer, and she could no longer work or walk. She was able to undergo wound debridement surgery in July thanks to donations collected from her community. However, her doctor told her that she would need to have a second surgery in order to fully heal her condition. Without treatment, Daw Tin is at risk of developing severe damage to underlying bone and tissue. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $851 to cover the cost of a local rotation flap procedure for Daw Tin, which is scheduled to take place on July 28th at BCMF's care center. During this procedure, surgeons will rotate a partially attached piece of skin onto the wound. This will allow for optimal vascularization, or the ability to grow blood vessels to improve oxygen and nutrient supply, as well as optimal tissue reconstruction. Daw Tin says, "I was so happy to hear that I would receive surgery with the help of donors and the organization. Without your help, I could never receive surgery."
