Maung is a 46-year-old man who lives with his wife, two daughters, and two sons in Ka Yin Village, Kawkareik Township, Karen State, Burma. Three of his children are studying at a village school, while the youngest son stays at home since he is only two years old. Maung’s wife is the sole earner for the entire family. In his free time, Maung likes to do meditation and is involved in community works in his village.

In 2016, Maung started to experience back pain and lower abdominal pain. His condition worsened in August 2018. He later went to the hospital, where he had an x-ray, ultrasound, and blood tests done. When the results came back, the doctor told him that he has a stone in his bladder.

Now, Maung is scheduled to undergo surgery to remove the bladder stone on August 28. He needs help raising $1,500 to fund this procedure. He plans to work again once he recovered.

“We will work hard to save money. We will buy a house for our family,” says Maung’s wife.
