Paw is an eight-month-old energetic baby girl from Burma. Both her siblings attend school. Her family rents a piece of land, where they grow crops that provide them with food throughout the year.
In March 2018, Paw fell off a stack of leaves her father had collected to thatch their house. The leaves were on top of bamboo sticks. When Paw fell, she hit her right thigh on one of the bamboo sticks and fractured her femur. Paw’s thigh is swelling and she cannot move her leg.
With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Paw will undergo surgery to reset her fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for March 7 and will cost $1,500. Receiving this procedure will allow Paw to heal properly and learn to walk.
“I hope my daughter will get an easier life and become an educated person. We will support her in whatever she wants to do. I do not want her to be a farmer like me, because it is a hard and difficult life,” said Paw’s mother.
