Aung is a 16-year-old student from Thailand. He and his younger brother live in a dormitory and study at a migrant school in Mae Sot. His parents live in Burma, and they are farmers. He spends his spare time playing football and cane ball with his friends.

Four days ago, Aung was playing cane ball with his friends at their dormitory. The next morning, he felt a sharp pain in his right groin and developed a fever. Aung has an inguinal hernia and a femoral hernia. He is in excruciating pain. Due to the pain, he is hardly able to walk. Fortunately, on May 21, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at Mae Sot General Hospital, our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund Aung’s hernia repair surgery. The procedure is scheduled to take place on May 21 and, once completed, will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.

Aung says, “I want to become a politician when I grow up. First, I need to continue my studies though when I am fully recovered.”
