Mu Ku is a one-year-old girl from Burma. She lives with her parents, two older sisters, and one older brother in Ku Tha Lo Der Village in Karen State. Her two sisters attend school and her parents work as subsistence farmers.
When Mu Ku was born, her parents immediately noticed her missing digits and the constriction around her left foot. Her foot has since swelled significantly.
Doctors want Mu Ku to undergo an MRI, an imaging procedure that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce images of bodily organs. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $968 to cover the cost of Mu Ku’s MRI and care, scheduled for February 25.
