U Hla underwent wound debridement to relieve his pain.

Before his surgery, U Hla could not sleep due to the pain he had from this infection. Although he wanted to work at a grocery story to earn extra income for his daughter’s school fees, he was not able to do so because of the ulcer. Since his surgery, he is no long in pain, and he can sleep better at night. He shared that he feels happy and stress free. He hopes that he can work in the grocery store again soon to support his daughter.

“I’d like to say thank you so much to all the donors who helped pay for the cost of my treatment. May the donors, Burma Children Medical Fund, and the doctor and nurses at MCLH live healthy and happy lives. In the future, I want to save money so that I can buy a small piece of land. I want to build a small house where I can live with my daughter,” U Hla said.

U Hla is a 42-year-old man from Burma. He lives in a monastery with his daughter in Mon State. U Hla spends most of him time volunteering at the monastery, cooking and cleaning for the monks. Sometimes, he works as a motorcycle taxi driver. His daughter goes to school and the abbot pays for her school fees.

For the past 20 years, U Hla has suffered from recurring infections. Two weeks ago, he developed an ulcer on his backside and now U Hla is in pain and he cannot sleep well.

Fortunately, our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is helping U Hla receive treatment. On October 28th, surgeons will perform a debridement to help the ulcer heal and stop him from being in pain. Now, U Hla needs help to fund this $694 procedure.

“I just want to be healthy and live with my family happily,” U Hla said.
