Nyunt is a 45-year-old man from a village in Burma. He is married and has six children. He is a subsistence farmer who grows rice and betel nut. His wife and oldest daughter work in Bangkok and send money home.
In February 2016, Nyunt began experiencing stabbing pain in his abdomen and in his back. He also developed a distended abdomen. He visited a local hospital, where he was given medication. Unfortunately, this did not relieve his condition. A medic recommended he seek care with our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund.
Nyunt is now scheduled for a CT scan on March 18. This procedure will give his doctors more information about the cause of his abdominal pain, allowing them to plan for further care.
Nyunt needs $414 to pay for the scan. Let’s help him begin getting better!
