Nine-year-old Soe likes to ride his bike and play with other kids in his town in Burma. Unfortunately, he’s broken his leg three times over the course of his adventures, and the most recent break has caused severe damage to his bone.
When Soe had his second leg break, he missed his final exams, and ended up having to repeat first grade. “We are worried that if he works in a laborious job in the future, he might be injured again,” his parents said. They are concerned and want to provide Soe proper treatment, but as rice farmers, Soe’s mom and dad are barely able to meet the family’s basic needs. Covering Soe’s medical care is well out of reach for the family.
But with $1,500, we can help pay for the corrective surgery Soe needs to fix his leg. This surgery will help him walk without crutches and return to school with his siblings next semester. Once he’s healed, he won’t need to worry about breaking his leg again, and will be able to play with his friends. Let’s make it happen!
