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.”
