about Nabimanya's recovery.

May 24, 2021

Nabimanya is a student in secondary school, and shared that he prefers sciences to arts and dreams of becoming a doctor. He also loves playing football. His father is a teacher and his mother is a small scale farmer. His parents are separated and he’s an only child in his family. Nabimanya stays with his grandmother, who is a small scale farmer earning a living from her banana plantation to support his education.

For eight years, Nabimanya has had a painful hernia in his lower left abdomen. This hernia causes him pain and discomfort, especially when he plays football. This is also affecting his studies. Fortunately, on May 25th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $230 to fund Nabimanya’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Nabimanya says, “I hope to resume with school in good health once I have fully recovered.”

Eh

Eh is a 16-year-old boy who lives with his parents and cousin in the refugee camp in Mae Hong Son Province in Thailand. His family receives 1,180 baht (approx. 39 USD) every month on a food card from the organization The Border Consortium. This amount is not enough to cover their daily needs despite receiving free basic health care and education in the camp. To help make ends meet, Eh’s father works as a security guard in the camp too, earning 800 baht (approx. 27 USD) in a month. In addition to this, Eh’s mother and cousin work as day labourers whenever they find work. Eh also works with them during his summer vacations. In May, Eh climbed up a ladder to lay down and rest in a bamboo hut on stilts. While trying to sit down, one of the bamboo sticks rolled out from under him and Eh fell through the floor of the hut. Putting out his left arm subconsciously to break his fall, Eh ended up landing on that arm. Currently, Eh's arm is in a sling and he is taking pain medication to control the pain. If he moves his left arm or tries to lift his arm, he feels a lot of pain. With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Eh will undergo surgery to reset his fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for May 28th and will cost $1,500. This procedure will help Eh be able to use his arm again and he will no longer be in pain after surgery. Eh shared, “I want to become a literature teacher as it is my favorite subject. After surgery, I hope that I can go back to school with my arm healed."
