A friendly woman from the Mae La refugee camp in Burma, San lives with her four sons, her husband, her mother and her father in one home. Her husband used to work as a day laborer on a farm to take care of the family’s basic expenses; however, he can no longer do so because of tightened camp security.

For the past two years, San has had an ovarian mass that initially seemed benign. “However, two months ago, the pain became intolerable, and she had a fever and cold sweats,” report our medical partners at Burma Border Projects. “Her back aches, and the pain in her abdomen feels like contractions. Additionally, she lost her appetite as a result of the pain, and has lost weight. The mass needs to be removed immediately as it is very dangerous for her health.”

For $1,500, we can fund a total hysterectomy, which will remove the mass and alleviate San’s abdominal and back pain, urination issues and loss of appetite.

“I was so worried I was going to die because I didn’t have any money to pay for my medical treatment, says San. “I am so happy I found this program. No one could help me, and then I came here and the nurse told me, ‘Don’t worry–I am the one who can help you.’ Now I am so happy!”
