Linn underwent hernia repair surgery.

Today, Linn’s health has completely improved since he underwent surgery. He no longer experiences pain in his groin.

His mother said, “It’s such a big relief for our family that we do not have to worry for our child’s condition as well as possible financial problems. We used to worry about what would happen to him if he could not receive treatment because we do not have money to pay for it. Thank you very much to all the donors for making our family’s burden easier.”

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.”
