Htun is a 35-year old man who has lived with his family in Mai village in Mandalay Township, Mandalay Division, Burma all his life. He is a factory worker who weaves bamboo. His wife makes cheroots, traditional Burmese cigarettes. His 12-year-old son goes to school and is in fifth grade.
Htun first noticed symptoms related to his current health problem in early October 2017. He started to frequently experience severe chest pains and was not able to move or walk. He noticed experiencing heart palpitations while he was working. He also had some problems with sleeping.
Fortunately, Htun is now scheduled to undergo heart surgery on January 31 to treat his condition. He needs help raising $1,500 to fund this procedure.
Htun says, “I just want to be healthy again. I want to fulfill my responsibility as a father by financially supporting for my children’s schooling. I only hope the best for my children.”
