Than Nwet received successful gynecological surgery.

“Than Nwet said that compared to how she felt prior to surgery, she feels so much better and happier,” reports the staff at Burma Border Projects. “Now she will be able to work and care for her family. Before surgery she was upset but now she is so happy. She has gained weight and she feels healthy.”

Than shares that after her full recovery - “I would like to be able to work in the rubber field in the future. If not, I will be satisfied to be healthy at home looking after my family.”

“48-year-old Than Nwet has lived in Burma for the last three years and works with her family as fishermen,” our medical partner, Burma Border Projects (BBP) tells us. She has five daughters and two sons.

“After Than Nwet’s third pregnancy, her uterus began to protrude from her vagina, but she did not seek medical help at that time,” BBP tells us. “After working very hard doing some heavy lifting, her uterus came completely out.” Than Nwet’s village clinic wasn’t able to provide proper gynecological care for her.

Her condition causes her to have constant pain, bleeding, and discomfort. “She is only able to perform household chores and cannot contribute to the household income.” She finally decided to seek proper care once her condition began impeding on her ability to walk.

Surgery and treatment for Than Nwet costs $1,500. “After surgery, Than Nwet should not have any more discomfort,” says BBP. “She should be able to go back and work and generate income for her family.”

“I am desperately hoping for a successful surgery so that I can return to work and experience relief,” shares Than Nwet.
