Naw Eh is an 11-year-old student who lives with her mother, five brothers and two sisters in a refugee camp. She and her siblings study in the camp while her mother weaves traditional Karen shirts to earn extra income. In her free time, Naw Eh loves to play with her younger brother at home. Sometimes, she also plays with her friends close to her house. She wants to be an English teacher at a primary school when she grows up.

In late July 2021, Naw Eh went out to buy some snacks. On the way, she slipped and fell on the muddy road and injured her left leg. Since she was able to walk slowly, the medic in the camp did not think her leg was broken and prescribed pain medication. Then, on August 19th, Naw Eh lost her grip when she was sitting down and fell. This time she could not stand up or walk. After a doctor at a local hospital diagnosed her with a fractured femur, she was referred to another hospital for further treatment. The doctor there told Naw Eh’s brother that they would like to do an MRI of her leg to check for underlying conditions that may have caused her to femur to break so easily. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan so she can have a healthy future ahead.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $814 to cover the cost of Naw Eh’s MRI, scheduled for August 23rd.

Naw Eh shared, “I’m afraid that my treatment will cause me more pain, but if it helps me recover so that I can walk again, then it’s okay.”

Gideon

Gideon, who was born with intellectual disabilities, lives in and attends a special school in Eldoret town. Gideon likes being in school and he likes drawing during his free time. His parents live in the village and it’s been a long time since Gideon has seen them, so he is looking forward to seeing them when he gets treated. Gideon came to the hospital after having a swelling in a sensitive area for more than two years. He reports that it was gradual on the onset but worsened with time. Gideon was brought to the hospital by one of his relatives after they were told of Gideon's condition. Before they came to Kapsowar Hospital, they had tried many other hospitals, but every time they were asked to pay huge amounts of money for treatment, which they cannot afford. Gideon has an appointment for a hydrocelectomy surgery to repair the double hernia bulges. He has been experiencing severe discomfort in the affected area and a mild headache, and feels ashamed walking around due to the swelling. Currently, Gideon is under the care and support of the Samaritans, but they don’t have money to pay for his surgery, only for room and board. They are asking anyone reading this story to support Gideon so he can undergo a successful surgery for recovery. Gideon is a happy young man who looks forward to seeing his parents soon. His uncle says, “I will be happy to see him without the swelling. He deserves to live a happy and healthy life like others.”
