Meet Khine, a 16-year-old girl who lives with her family in Burma. She works as a cleaner at her village’s nursery school to help support her family.
Khine shares with our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), that earlier this year she started experiencing extreme fatigue and had difficulty breathing. Results from an ultrasound indicated that Khine has a cardiac condition, a diagnosis which was eventually confirmed by doctors at a hospital affiliated with BCMF.
On September 15, Khine will undergo life-saving heart surgery to repair the atrial septal defect.
With $1,500 we can help Khine to get the medical treatment she needs. “I want to go back to work so I can support my family,” says Khine.
