November 8, 2022

Grace is a 31-year-old mother of two. She completed high school, but her parents could not afford to send her to college. Despite big dreams, Grace shared that she was forced to stay at home and later got married.

Grace and her husband practice small-scale farming, but sometimes he is able to find additional work to supplement theirincome. The couple is blessed with two children who are attending primary school. Grace and her family live in a twin room semi-permanent house near a trading center. During her free time, she enjoys reading.

She is currently expecting her third child. She has visited an antenatal clinic two times and been receiving good care. Grace believes that this pregnancy will have a good outcome and is excited to welcome her new baby. When she visited Nyakibale Hospital, she was recommended to deliver via a c-section so that her doctors can ensure the safety of both mother and child.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Grace undergo a C-Section on November 10th. This procedure will cost $252, and Grace needs your support.

Grace says, “I cannot afford the costs of the surgery and would request for your support. I look forward to continuing farming after the surgery to earn a living for my family.”

Saw Myo

Saw Myo is a 14-year-old from Burma. He lives with his grandparents, parents, two sisters, and brother. His grandparents are retired. His father farms paddy and rubber trees on their land, while his mother is a homemaker. Saw Myo and his siblings are all in school, but Saw Myo recently had to stop attending due to a medical condition. Saw Myo has had a lump on his lower spinal cord since he was nine years old due to an injury from a slingshot. He received medicinal ointment from a traditional healer that helped with the stiffness and prevented further growth. However, Saw Myo fell off his bicycle a few years later, and the lump grew in size. His family took him to several clinics, and an X-ray indicated a potential spinal cord problem. The doctors recommended a computerized tomography (CT) scan, but due to COVID-19 policies, Saw Myo could not receive the scan. His parents continued to try and help Saw Myo receive treatment but learned that his condition could not be treated locally. Saw Myo's mother then contacted a neighbor who worked as a medic at a clinic in Burma and began raising money for his care. The doctors want Saw Myo to undergo an MRI, which is an imaging procedure that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce images of bodily organs. This scan will help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), is helping Saw Myo receive this treatment. On November 15th, he will undergo an MRI. BCMF requests $814 to cover the cost of Saw Myo's MRI procedure and care. Saw Myo's mother said: “We have been so worried since we saw the mass increasing in size. It was tiring to seek treatment in Burma, and we now have borrowed a lot of money without Saw Myo having received treatment."
