Htun Linn is a one-year-old boy from Thailand. He lives with his parents and siblings in Mae La Maung Village, Mae Sot District, Tak Province.
When Htun Linn was nine months old, his mother noticed that he has an inguinal hernia. Sometimes, Htun Linn feels pain and can’t sleep well. Fortunately, on December 20, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at Mae Sot General Hospital, our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund Htun Linn’s hernia repair surgery. The procedure is scheduled to take place on December 20 and, once completed, will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
His mother says, “I feel sad and depressed that we do not have money to treat our son. I sometimes cannot even sleep when I think about Htun Linn and I am worried for him. I hope he will recover with the help of this treatment.”
