Htay is a 43-year-old woman who lives and works with her nieces and nephew on a cabbage farm in Thailand.
Since 2016, Htay has had pain in her lower right abdomen. When the pain started, she received medication from a clinic, which helped. However, in 2017 Htay’s symptoms returned. She went back to the clinic, and was diagnosed with a gallstone in the common bile duct. After being diagnosed she was sent to the hospital, where the doctors confirmed her diagnosis and told her that she needed surgery.
“I want to recover very soon so that I can return to my work,” said Htay.
Watsi is requesting $1,500 to help fund Htay’s treatment. She will undergo a biliary obstruction repair on August 28.
