Soe received treatment to heal his broken leg.

“Before treatment, Soe was unable to walk,” Soe’s doctor at our medical partner, Burma Border Projects, writes. “Now, not only can Soe walk unassisted, he is able to kick a ball around his neighbours. His father calls him his cheeky monkey because he likes to swing off tree branches. His parents are happy to see him mobile again.”

Soe’s doctor adds, “Soe will return to school next year at one of the refugee camps along the Thai-Burma border. He will be two years behind but he says he doesn’t mind too much. His parents say its very important for him to be studious. A good education will help him to find a good job. Soe said he would like to be a teacher when he is older. His parents said a big thank you to the doctors and donors who made his operation possible.”

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!
