Thi is a 29-year-old woman who lives with her family in a village in Ayeyarwady Division, Burma. She is a housewife, and her husband is a motorcycle taxi driver. Their son is a student in sixth grade. Their family income is enough to cover their family’s basic needs, but they are unable to save any money.
For the last 15 years, Thi has periodically experienced fatigue, shortness of breath, and chest pain. She has been diagnosed with heart disease, and her condition requires surgery.
On September 12, Thi will undergo a double valve replacement heart procedure. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, requests $1,500 for her treatment.
“After I get better from surgery, I will be work as much as I can to increase my family income and I will pay back my debt,” says Thi.
