Linn is an 11-month-old baby boy from Thailand. He lives with his parents and two uncles in Mae Sot, Tak Province. His family moved from Karen State, Burma to Thailand just a month ago for better job opportunities.
Linn has been diagnosed with a scrotal hernia. Fortunately, on September 26, 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 Linn’s hernia repair surgery. The procedure is scheduled to take place on September 26 and, once completed, will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
His father says, “My plan for him is to keep him in school when he recovers. Then, I want him to either become a doctor, a teacher, or a boxer.”
