Mohamed's treatment was fully funded on February 12, 2013.

Mohamed is a little boy with big dreams. He is a math lover and soccer player, and at the young age of 7 he has already declared he wants to be a doctor when he grows up.

Mohamed has an abscess in his liver and the infection is making him increasingly sick. First, Mohamed lost his appetite. Then, he began losing weight. After that, he became too weak to attend school. Now, Mohamed is so weak he cannot walk. Doctors at Project Muso tell us that, “without treatment, his life is in danger.”

Mohamed comes from Mali, one of the 25 poorest countries in the world. His father works as a community organizer and earns a modest income. It’s enough to feed his family, but not enough to pay for Mohamed’s medical care.

We need to raise the $515 Mohamed needs to have his abscess drained, monitored, and medicated. With treatment, Mohamed’s doctors say he can “return to school and a healthy, normal life.”

Note: Mali is currently embroiled in serious civil conflict. This may impact the rate at which we can provide updates on this patient, so please bear with us.

Myat

Myat is a two-month-old boy who lives with his family in Hpa-An Town, Karen State, Burma. His father passed away when his mother was two months pregnant with him. Myat’s mother is a homemaker and she takes care of him at home. All of his sister and brothers are students. Myat’s grandfather drives a tricycle taxi. On 6 June 2019, Myat was born without any complications at HGH. Since he was born, his mother noticed that he has been passing white coloured stools, but she did not do anything about it because she thought it was normal. When he was just over a month old, his mother noticed that Myat’s navel was bigger than normal. His mother then took him to HGH. The doctor examined his navel and told his mother not to worry too much and he also told her come back if it becomes bigger. A few days later, Myat’s mother noticed that his navel has become bigger and his mother took him to the hospital again. The doctor again took a look at Myat’s navel and advised his mother to take him to a hospital in Yangon for treatment. However, Myat’s mother did not have money to go to Yangon. On 6 September 2019 Myat received an X-ray at Mae Sot Hospital (MSH) and was given a diagnosis of a bulging navel and biliary atresia, a childhood disease of the liver in which one or more bile ducts are abnormally narrow, blocked, or absent. Currently, Myat still passes white coloured stools. He also has a bulging navel which never goes away. His mother is very much worried for him, especially that she just learned about his liver disease. Myat’s mother said, “I would like him to be like other children. I feel bad for him but at the same time happy that an organization Burma Children Medical Fund will help him for his treatment.”
