Thin is a nine-year-old second grader from Burma. She lives with her grandparents while her mother is working in Bangkok.

Thin has a femoral hernia. She cannot play or run because the hernia causes her pain. Fortunately, on May 10, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at Mae Sot General Hospital, our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund Thin’s hernia repair surgery. The procedure is scheduled to take place on May 10 and, once completed, will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably.

“As a single mother, it is a difficult balancing act to get my daughter treated while trying not to lose my job. My daughter is still very young. She has a future and I want her to live healthily,” says Thin’s mother.
