Nwe is a mother of a two-year-old daughter from Thailand. Currently, she and her husband both work as day laborers for local farmers, harvesting chilies and other vegetables. At home, Nwe enjoys spending time with and caring for her daughter. She also likes being employed and earning money.
Nwe started to experience pain in her abdomen a year ago. The pain makes it difficult for her to move around and causes extreme exhaustion. She has been diagnosed with fibroids, which are benign growths in the uterus. She needs to undergo a myomectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove the fibroids.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), is requesting $960 to fund Nwe’s surgery. She is scheduled to undergo her myomectomy on November 1 at BCMF’s care center, Mae Sot General Hospital.
Nwe says, “I hope for a healthy future where I can work and help provide for my family.”
