Hemraj is 15 and studies in the secondary level. He lives with his parents and siblings.

His father works in India to support the family back home, and his mother works on the farm for their living. The yield from the field keeps them going for about three months of the year.

A year ago, Hemraj started experiencing a buildup of fluid in a sensitive area. It looked like a small fluid-filled balloon. His parents tried some herbal medicine at home, but his symptoms did not improve. Finally, the family traveled to reach our medical partner’s hub, Bayalpata Hospital.

Hemraj’s hydrocele repair surgery is scheduled for March 30. The surgery will cost $380. The family cannot afford this procedure and needs help raising the necessary funds.

Hemraj’s uncle says, “I wish for him to return to his normal life.”

Linn

Linn is a 24-year-old seventh grader from Burma. She lives with her parents, grandmother, an uncle and three younger sisters in Myawaddy Township, Karen State. Among her family, only her father and her mother work. Her uncle stays home and looks after her grandmother and her youngest sister, while her two other sisters go to school. To support their family, Linn’s parents work as day labourers. About six months ago, while she was studying at school, Linn started to experience dizziness and severe headaches. When she looked at the blackboard and her notebook, she had blurry double vision. However, she did not say anything to the teacher as she is new at the school and she was afraid of the teacher. When her friends found out what was happening to her, they wanted to tell the teacher, but Linn forbid them from doing so. After a month of struggling with this problem, Linn finally told her mother. She had kept it from her as she knew about their financial difficulties and she did not want to become a burden. Linn's parents took her to an eyeglass shop in Myawaddy. There, they examine her eyesight, told Linn that she does not need eyeglasses and urged her to go to Mae Sot Hospital (MSH) in Thailand. Doctors want Linn to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Linn's CT scan and care, scheduled for September 2nd. As for Linn, she enjoys studying a lot. She said, “English and mathematics are my favorite subjects. I’m also interested in karate as self-defense course and I want to learn it. But, when I have time, I have to help out with household chores. I also have to set aside time to studying.”
