Nay Kaw underwent a mass removal from his right wrist.

Before the mass was removed, Nay Kaw’s right wrist hurt and he was was not able to carry the alms collection bowl as a novice monk and had to leave monkhood. Since his surgery, Nay Kaw feels better especially since the mass is no longer there. However, he still has pain at the site of the surgical wound and is slowly recovering. Now he even helps his aunt who weaves traditional Karen clothes by winding the yarn for her loom.

“After my hand has fully healed, I would like to continue my schooling until I complete high school,” said Nay Kaw. “Then I can also help my parents with their farming.”

Nay Kaw is an 11-year-old student from Burma. He lives with his parents, two older brothers and two younger sisters. He is currently in first grade since he left monkhood last year. His father is a farmer and his mother is a homemaker who looks after his youngest sister at home, the other sister is also a student like Nay Kaw. Nay Kaw, along with his two brothers, help with household chores and in his free time, he likes to play cane ball and hunt.

Since birth, Nay Kaw has a had a mass on his right wrist. When he turned three years old, the mass increased in size but was still not painful. But by the time he was ten years old, the mass increased in size again, and became swollen and painful. His mother took him to a traditional healer but the medicine he received did not help.

Fortunately our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, can help. He is now scheduled to undergo mass removal surgery on July 9th. This surgery will relieve him of his pain and discomfort. He needs your help to cover the $1,500 cost of his procedure and care.

Nay Kaw shared, “I would like to be a teacher because I would like to teach children like my friends who are not able to go to school to study.”
