Kyi underwent gallbladder surgery.

Kyi feels a lot better after surgery. He no longer has back pain, and he can walk without a stomachache.

Kyi’s wife said, “I use to worry for him, worry that he will not recover and that his symptoms will worsen. But now I am relieved that he has received surgery.”

Kyi is a 34-year-old health worker from Thailand. He lives with his wife.

Kyi feels stomach and back pain. He has been advised to undergo a biliary obstruction repair, a procedure to repair the blockage of the bile ducts, which carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder. If left untreated, Kyi’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put him at risk for further health complications in the future.

After seeking treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), Kyi is scheduled to undergo his biliary obstruction repair on June 21. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Kyi’s procedure and care.

Gay

Gay is a one-year-old boy living with his family in a refugee camp. His family is originally from Burma, but they left for Thailand due to conflict in the area. Gay lives with his parents, grandparents, aunt, uncle, and brother. Gay and his brother are too young to go to school, so they stay home with their mother. Gay's aunt and uncle are in school, while his father and grandfather work on a farm near the refugee camp. Gay was born with an inguinal hernia. The condition causes him severe pain, and he often cries, so his mother sits quietly with him to help reduce the pain he is experiencing. Gay needs to undergo surgery to finally heal. Fortunately, our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), can help Gay receive treatment. On May 27th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery to help him live more comfortably in the future. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to fund his procedure and care. Gay's mother shared, “I have to be with him constantly. He cries and does not let anyone else hold him except me. I also have to look after my mother and sister, and sometimes we do not have time to cook. I cannot take care of everyone. I felt so happy when I heard that an organization will pay for my son's surgery. I would like to say thank you to all the donors who will help my son. I believe my son will get better soon and that he will grow up without feeling ashamed of himself due to his condition. I want him to become an educated person in the future.”
