Nwe Nwe underwent gallbladder surgery.

After her second surgery, Nwe feels a lot better and her family is very grateful for her recovery.

Nwe said, “I am very happy and thankful to all of the donors. If not for your support and help, I wouldn’t be alive. I have the life that you have given me. Now my husband feels relieved and can go back to work. In the future, if I recover fully I will go back to work at my old job and save money for my family.”

Nwe Nwe is 42-year-old woman from Thailand. She lives in Thailand with her husband and youngest son. She has two other children who study in Burma and currently live with her mother.

Nwe Nwe has multiple gallstones and suffers from abdominal discomfort, headaches, difficulty breathing, and vomiting.

Nwe Nwe has been advised to undergo a biliary obstruction repair, a procedure to repair the blockage of the bile ducts, which carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder. If left untreated, Nwe Nwe’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put her at risk for further health complications in the future.

After seeking treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), Nwe Nwe is scheduled to undergo her biliary obstruction repair on June 29. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Nwe Nwe’s procedure and care.

If she recovers after surgery, Nwe Nwe would like to work and save money for her children’s school fees. “My oldest son will be starting grade ten next year so his school fees will be more expensive,” said Nwe Nwe. “I am not educated so I want my children to receive an education.”
