Paw San underwent treatment to heal his fracture.

After the doctor reviewed his X-ray results, the doctor decided against surgery and instead wired his mouth closed to help his jaw heal correctly. Since after treatment, he no longer has any pain in his jaw or bleeding in his mouth. He can now sleep very well.

Paw San is 33-year-old man from Burma. In March, he fell into a ditch. When he got up, the left side of his jaw was swollen and he had blood in his mouth. Paw San had fractured his lower jaw. Currently his injury is getting worse and he is in a lot of pain.

With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Paw San will undergo surgery to reset his fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for April 8 and will cost $1,500. This procedure will help to heal Paw San’s jaws properly so that he will be able to chew and eat again.

Paw San says, “When I finish receiving treatment for my lower jaw fracture, I have to work and save money to support my daughter. This coming year, she will go to school to start kindergarten.”

U Chit

U Chit is a 42-year-old husband and father from Burma. He lives with his in-laws, wife and son. His father-in-law works as a day laborer, while his wife and his mother-in-law are homemakers. U Chit used to work with his father-in-law, and also as a motorcycle taxi driver for extra income. However, he stopped working in January when his health worsened. When schools reopen, his son will begin kindergarten. A little over a year ago, U Chit began experiencing dizziness, fatigue, tightness in his chest and difficulty breathing when he exerted himself. A month later, he visited a local clinic where he was diagnosed with high blood pressure. However, in December 2021, U Chit lost a lot of weight and experienced night sweats in addition to his other symptoms. He was diagnosed with aortic valve regurgitation, mitral valve regurgitation and tricuspid valve regurgitation, and was placed on a waiting list to receive surgery. Because his condition is severe, the doctor recommended that he undergo surgery as soon as possible. Fortunately, our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), is helping U Chit access treatment. On April 8th, he will undergo mitral valve replacement surgery at BCMF's care center. After recovery, his symptoms should improve. Now, he needs help raising $1,500 to fund his procedure and care. U Chit shared, "I gave up and I was ready to die before. There are a lot of heart patients waiting to receiving surgery. Since I heard that I could have surgery with the help of donors, I feel like there is hope that I will survive. I have to look after my family because my son is still young. I will always remember everything the donors did for me."
