Dah is a 43-year-old woman from Burma. The family owns a piece of land, which Dah’s husband and her five siblings use to grow crops and rice paddies and raise chickens and pigs .As the family lives from their land, they don’t have a monthly income.
This July, Dah attended her aunt’s funeral and had to walk home at night. Because it was raining, she decided to run, but she slipped and broke her left arm. Dah went to a traditional healer, who applied a mixture of tamarind and wine on her arm. Her arm did not heal properly. Currently, Dah feels pain and she cannot take care of her sons.
With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Dah will undergo surgery to reset her fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for December 23 and will cost $1,500. This surgery will help Dah heal successfully.
Dah says, “I hope to get better soon so I can take care of my children again, and let my husband go back to work.”
