Thidar underwent surgery to treat an infection.

Before her surgery, Thidar would experience pain in her left foot, especially at night. She could not sleep well, worrying about her foot and her financial situation. Thidar felt sad that she could not do her household chores. Luckily Thidar had a successful surgery and now she feels a lot better and is no longer in pain. She is looking forward to going home and resuming her day-to-day activities.

“I want to open a small shop from my house,” Thidar told us as she shared her hopes now that she is feeling better.

Thidar is a 43-year-old woman who lives with her husband and two daughters in Burma. She is a homemaker while her two daughters are students. However, the school in their village is closed due to the teachers being on strike following the country’s coup earlier this year.

Thidar was diagnosed with diabetes 13 years ago, and recently noticed that her toe on her left foot was becoming black. After visiting a local clinic, Thidar was diagnosed with having an ulcer and was prescribed medication as treatment. Unfortunately, the ulcer was not responding to medication and various treatments. Thidar then was advised to visit an hospital where the doctor’s further noticed more of her toes were swollen and black as well. Thidar was diagnosed with gangrene, a rare infection where blood flow does not reach your extremities. Our medical partner, the Burma Children Medical Fund is requesting $694 for surgery on Thidar’s foot to treat the gangrene.

Currently, Thidar is in pain especially at night. She is unable to sleep well and is worried about her foot and her family’s financial situation. She told us, “In the future I want to open a shop in my home,” she said. “Thank you so much to all the donors and supporters.”
