Kyaw Myat is a five-year-old boy from Burma. He lives with his family in Ma Gyi Pin Village, Tigyaing Township, Sagaing Division.

Doctors believe that Kyaw Myat has a benign brain tumor. They want Kyaw Myat to undergo an MRI, an imaging procedure that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce images of bodily organs. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $968 to cover the cost of Kyaw Myat’s MRI and care, scheduled for April 17.

His father says, “If possible, I want him to become a teacher.”

Shadrack

Shadrack is a three year old boy from Tanzania and the second-born child in a family of three children. He is a friendly and playful boy who is happy and smiling most of the time. Shadrack was born with deformed legs, the right leg had been affected at the foot missing all the toes and is bent inward while the left was missing the lower part from below his knee. This condition has made it difficult and painful for Shadrack to walk, he mostly moves using his knees which has caused him to have wounds most of the time. Shadrack received surgery in November 2019 so he will be able to use prosthetics on the amputated leg to walk. He now needs treatment for his right leg and club foot. This treatment will enable Shadrack to walk better using both his legs and he will not be subjected to stigma as he is growing up. Shadrack’s mother heard about our Watsi partner from an outreach team that visited their village and Shadrack’s mother brought him for help. Shadrack’s mother is a small scale farmer who strives to provide for Shadrack and his siblings on her own since her husband abandoned her after the birth of their last born. She is not able to afford Shadrack’s surgery, she needs help. Fortunately, Shadrack traveled to visit our medical partner's care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on January 3rd. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Shadrack's clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk more easily. Shadrack’s mother says, “Please help my son so that he is able to walk without difficulty.”

Richard

Richard is a farmer from Kenya. Father of six Richard is a small scale farmer. He plants maize and beans in his farm. Richard doesn’t have a good house to live in. He stays in a two room house roofed with grass. None of his children completed school due to low income in the family. The family has gone through a hard-time that they even lack food some of the days. Two months ago, Richard was involved in a road traffic accident and sustained a complex femur fracture on his left leg. Richard was brought to our hospital where he underwent a successful intramedullary nail femur surgery on 8/08/2019. He was discharged where he has been recovering at home. On his first surgical review, the surgeon realized that Richard is unable to get full extension of the femur. On further examination he realized that Richard had shortened femur and suggested that he needs revision surgery to fix his this condition for previous surgery done that was not successful. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On October 07, Richard will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him walk easily again Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure. Richard says, “I am really worried about the fate of my leg. I thought it was getting well. I have nothing to offer for my second surgery. Help me raise funds to make it possible and a success."
