Mu is 68 years old and lives with her family in a village in Burma. She does not work anymore and relies on her two children to provide for her.
About a month ago, Mu’s finger started to itch, and she developed bullae, a fluid-filled sac. That turned into an ulcer, and the bones of her ring finger were exposed more and more. On July 25, half her ring finger was amputated, but the ulcer continued causing her finger to deteriorate.
On August 3, Mu will undergo treatment to amputate the rest of her ring finger and possibly its nearest finger. For the treatment, our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, requests $1,500 to help cover some of the costs.
Mu says, “I hope to get well soon again so that I can continue a life of devotion and rest.”
