Mu Koh received treatment for a painful uterine prolapse.
“Prior to treatment, Mu Koh suffered constant fevers and sharp abdominal pain, to the extent of not being able to walk,” Mu Koh’s doctor tells us. “She was asked about her symptoms post treatment and she replied, ‘They are all gone, I am well again!’ She is noticeably happier now. She can walk long distances with ease and can eat and sleep well.”
Mu Koh’s doctors say that when asked about her post-surgery plans, Mu Koh says she will be helping her family with house chores, looking after her children at home, and working in her garden.
“She wants to say thank you so much to the donors and hospital staff for making her treatment happen,” Mu Koh’s doctor shares. “She added, ‘Without your support I wouldn’t be able to afford my treatment costs.’ She said she will pray that all of the donors will be happy and healthy.”

Meet Mu Koh, a forty-year-old woman from Burma. She lives with her husband and three children in a small village. She and her husband work as subsistence farmers, harvest rice paddy, and keep a small number of livestock.
For the last nineteen years, she has lived with a uterine prolapse. This means that her pelvic floor muscles can no longer support the uterus, causing it to sag significantly.
“I have been suffering from this condition for the last nineteen years. Now that I have found this program I am very optimistic for the future,” Mu Koh says.
“Mu Koh isn’t able to sit, walk or squat comfortably and the only way to relieve the pain is for her to lie down,” our medical partner Burma Border Projects (BBP) says. To date, Mu Koh has been unable to receive medical attention, as there is no appropriate health facility in her village.
“Once Mu Koh has undergone a total abdominal hysterectomy, she will be able to return to her family with good health and with regenerated dignity,” BBP says.
