Myo Chit received surgery to re-set his fractured tibia.

Myo Chit’s doctor at Burma Border Projects writes, “Myo Chit is the oldest of seven children and he is a very playful boy. He really loves football–he would even try to play with his crutches and his father said he could do so very well! Now he is delighted that he will be able to play with his friends freely and even go to school. He had to stop when he was in the second grade, but he is really looking forward to returning.”

Myo Chit says, “I am really happy to have received treatment–now I can do what I want! I can go where I like. I am so happy. In the future I really want to be a medic so I can help people like all the doctors and nurses have helped me.”

His father wanted to add, “Thank you to everyone who has helped my son get treatment. If we were alone we wouldn’t be able to afford treatment so we are very grateful to everyone. Thank you so much.”

Myo Chit lives with his family in refugee camp. “They used to live in rural area,” our hospital partner explains, “however his family fled to the camp to escape the Burmese soldiers recruiting laborers.”

Myo Chit is the oldest of six children. He was studying in 2nd grade and loved going to school. But he stopped attending last year when he contracted cellulitis - a bacterial infection - after he fractured his tibia slipping in the bathroom.

Myo Chit cannot walk. When he sits for too long, his leg swells up and becomes painful. His parents cannot afford his medical expenses. His father only works as day laborer, but only gets jobs about ten days a month. If we can help him get the healthcare he needs, Myo Chit is excited to return to school and get an education.

“He is looking forward to playing football with his friends. He would like to help people when he gets older as a medic or a doctor,” our partner in Burma writes.

So is a 40-year-old man from Burma. He lives with his family in Myawaddy Township, Karen State. He is a carpenter while his wife is a homemaker. His mother is retired, and his son goes to school. In his free time, So loves to read the newspaper and magazines, as well as going to the pagoda. In mid-2016, So felt lightheaded one day while working. His friend rushed him to the nearest clinic where the doctor completed a physical examination. He was told that his lightheartedness was caused by the hot weather and he was told to drink more water. The following day, So felt lightheaded and developed a headache. He went to the clinic near his house, where he received an injection and oral medication. This time the doctor told him that his symptoms were due to hypertension and told him to come back to the clinic if he did not feel better. So underwent MRI on 14th of September 2019. The result of MRI shows that there is extraaxial mass with rim calcification along right frontal convexity. The doctor told So that he requires surgery to remove the mass. Presently, So still experiences frequent headaches and bouts of dizziness. He cannot sleep well, and he has trouble focusing. So sought treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund. he is now scheduled to undergo mass removal surgery on October 24th. He is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care. So said, "I am ready for surgery. I believe that I will be healthy after that. Now, after taking medications from the hospital, I feel like I have less headache and less dizziness."
