Ah has a hole in her heart called an atrial septal defect. A 27-year-old migrant worker in Thailand, she and her husband work seasonally for $5 a day. Their combined income is enough to meet their basic needs, but leaves nothing to spare.
“Ah’s husband tells us that he is worried for his wife,” our medical partner writes. “He says her children are very young and he worries for their future if their mother cannot get treatment.”
$1500 is the difference between Ah receiving healthcare and not. When asked how she feels about her future, Ah tells her doctors, “what will be will be in this life,” and starts to cry when she’s told there are people who will help support her treatment. Let’s show her our support by funding her care today.
