Mu is a 25-year-old farmer from Burma. She lives with her family. In her free time, she enjoys reading books that make her laugh.
Two years ago, Mu began experiencing pain in her lower back. She has been diagnosed with kidney stones, which are hard deposits of minerals that form in the kidneys and are often very painful to pass. She has been advised to undergo surgery to remove her kidney stones. If left untreated, Mu’s symptoms will continue to worsen and will put her at risk for further health complications in the future.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund Mu’s kidney stone removal surgery. The procedure is scheduled to take place on May 15.
She says, “I hope that my surgery…will be successful so that I can return home and give myself and my family peace of mind.”
