Tha Zin is 13-year-old student from Burma. She attends a local school in her home village and is currently in grade seven. In her free time, Tha Zin enjoys drawing.
Since 2017, Tha Zin has been experiencing regular episodes of lower abdominal pain. She has been diagnosed with fibroids, which are benign growths in the uterus. She needs to undergo a myomectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove the fibroids.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), is requesting $960 to fund Tha Zin’s surgery. She is scheduled to undergo her myomectomy on April 18 at BCMF’s care center, Mae Sot General Hospital.
“When I grow up, I want to become an engineer,” says Tha Zin.
