Dah Htoo underwent successful burn repair surgery.

Dah Htoo has regained much of the function of his right hand.

Dah Htoo will require another surgery to remove the remaining scar contractures on his hand. His doctors explain that they did not remove all the scar contractures in a single surgery, as they wanted to prevent post-operative infections and complications.

Dah Htoo’s father says, “I am so happy for my son. I am very thankful to all the donors for making this happen because we would never be able to afford the surgery ourselves.”

Dah Htoo is a two-year-old boy who lives in a village near the Thai-Burma border. He lives with his parents, uncle, grandmother, and younger brother. His father is a subsistence farmer and an agricultural day laborer.

When Dah Htoo was one year old, he was crawling in the kitchen while his mother cooked soup. He accidentally knocked over the boiling soup, spilling it over his arm. His parents brought him straight to a clinic, where medics bandaged his arm and hand. Over time, Dah Htoo lost functionality in his arm and hand.

Dah Htoo underwent two successful surgeries to treat his injuries. After recovery, he could straighten his arm. On November 23, Dah Htoo underwent a third surgery to improve the functionality of his hand. Now, his family needs help to fund this $1,500 procedure.

“My son’s health is more important than other things,” says his father, “so I left my farm and came with my son to get treatment.”
