Rose received maternal healthcare to ensure a safe delivery for her baby.

The delivery went smoothly and Rose is a now a new mother!

During the birth, Rose and her child were cared for by a skilled birth attendant at the health facility. Rose said, “I would encourage any expectant mother in this community to always ensure she attends antenatal clinic regularly.” Rose can now share her positive birth experience with other mothers and spread awareness of the resources available. Thanks to you, Rose is a happy, healthy mother!

Rose works with her hands: growing, tending, picking and cutting vegetables and beans from her farm. She is now expecting a baby, and while she is excited, she is worried about her health. 99% of all maternal deaths occur in developing countries - largely because women don’t have access to skilled birth attendants.

Rose went to a nearby health facility and was urged to have a qualified doctor deliver and monitor her baby. “The [nurses] are caring, loving, kind and always ready to assist,” says Rose. She’s also hoping for the rare opportunity to have her baby immunized at birth.

It’s getting harder for Rose to walk long distances and care for her exuberant children. But she still tirelessly works on the farm and is optimistic about the future. “I’m praying for a safe delivery in a health facility,” she says. With our help, Rose and her baby will receive the care they need.

Eh

Eh is a 22-year-old woman from Thailand. She was born and lives her parents and younger brother in Mae La Refugee Camp. Her younger brother studies at the bible school at the camp. Eh used to attend the same school as a third-year student, but she had to stop studying when her health deteriorated. Eh's father is a homemaker, and her mother works for the department of health at the camp. In 2017, Eh started to become more tired and began to have difficulty breathing. Her mother took her to the clinic in the camp and the doctor listened to her heart, did an electrocardiogram (ECG) and told Eh’s mother that Eh has a heart disease. She was then referred to Mae Sot Hospital (MSH) for further investigation. Eh was not told anything about her condition, and the doctor only informed her parents without telling her. Eh had an echocardiogram (echo) at MSH in December 2018. After the echo, she travelled back and forward several times from Mae La refugee camp to MSH for medical follow-up visits. Finally, the doctor at MSH informed her that she needs surgery. Currently, Eh has dizziness, headaches, tiredness and sometimes experiences difficulty breathing. She sleeps well but has lost her appetite and she sometimes suffers from chest pain. She loves reading and playing football and volleyball in her free time. Eh was born with ventricular septal defect, a cardiac condition in which a hole exists between the two lower chambers of the heart. Blood leaks through this hole without first passing through his lungs to obtain oxygen, leaving him sick and short of breath. Eh is scheduled to undergo heart surgery on October 5th to correct her condition and improve her quality of life. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Eh's procedure and care. Eh said, “All my classmate graduated, and I want to as well, but I am tired of studying and when I think about this, I cry”.
