Kyaw Zin is a 20-year-old from Burma with congenital heart disease. He recently moved to Thailand with his family in pursuit of a better life, but his medical condition still prevents him from fully participating in the world around him.
Kyaw Zin’s mother first sought medical attention for her son when he was two years old. Doctors diagnosed him with heart disease, but as a family that made only a few dollars a day working as gardeners, treatment was financially way out of reach.
So, for the last 18 years, Kyaw Zin has lived with shortness of breath, heart palpitations, and fatigue. His fingers occasionally turn blue. Once, when he was 16, he collapsed completely.
We’re raising $1,500 to give Kyaw Zin the heart surgery he needs to live a healthy life. Let’s do this!
