Barrack is a baby from Kenya. He is the youngest in a family of two children.

One year ago, Barrack sustained burns on his right elbow after boiling water spilled on his hand. He cannot straighten or bend his hand fully.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Barrack receive treatment. On August 6, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help him use his hand freely. Now, his family needs help to fund this $799 procedure.

“We have been looking for help concerning my son’s condition and are still waiting for help. My desire is to see his hand straightened and able to do his work independently,” says his father.

U Nyan

U Nyan is a 62-year-old man who lives with his wife in Mon State, Burma. He used to work as a tricycle taxi driver as well as a day labourer but since he had stroke around three months ago, he stopped working. His wife also had a stroke and cannot work. They have a daughter who works across the border in Bangkok, and she sends them some money every three or four months. However, the amount that her daughter sends is not enough for U Nyan and his wife for their daily expenses and they shared that, occasionally, their neighbor also gives them food. Recently, U Nyan noticed a small lump on his left elbow, which rapidly became enlarged and painful. Currently, U Nyan is in a lot of pain and cannot sleep. After seeking treatment at various clinics and hospitals, U Nyan was finally referred to Mawlamyine Christian Leprosy Hospital (MCLH) where he was diagnosed with an abscess around his left elbow joint and scheduled for surgery on May 9th. When he told the doctor that he could not afford to pay for his surgery, the doctor referred him to our medical partner Burma Children Medical Fund for financial assistance accessing surgery. He has already borrowed about $350 so far to help with his diagnosis and treatment, and people in his community have pitched in to support him financially. Our medical partner is helping him raise $760 for his surgery. “After surgery I want to go home and look after my wife. I want to listen to sermons, meditate and do good deeds,” shared U Nyan.
