Elizabeth underwent a c-section.

Abaaho received a successful Elective Caesarean Section treatment due to precious baby with poor obstetric history. She delivered a baby boy with 3.5 kgs. Both the mother and baby are in good health.

Abaaho says, “I am so pleased of the support given to me as I had no money set aside for my health. May you be blessed and I hope to continue with teaching when I get fine.”

Elizabeth visited Nyakibale hospital at 35 weeks pregnant. She has had a poor obstetric past with three miscarriages and an intrauterine death due to cord compression. Currently, the pregnancy indicated a breech presentation, which puts the mother and the child at risk.

Upon reviewing her ultrasound, the doctor has advised her to have a caesarian section to ensure the safe delivery of the child and the mother’s safety. Out of six pregnancies, Elizabeth has only one child but optimistic of the current pregnancy. She is a high school teacher while the husband is a shopkeeper. They have been on a loan that has limited their financial ability. She is not able to meet the cost of surgery in our facility.  Elizabeth appeals for financial assistance.

Elizabeth says “I pray that at least, I will have a live baby so that I can also gain courage because I have lost enough. Hoping to a better delivery and a happy family after surgery.”

Linn

Linn is a 24-year-old seventh grader from Burma. She lives with her parents, grandmother, an uncle and three younger sisters in Myawaddy Township, Karen State. Among her family, only her father and her mother work. Her uncle stays home and looks after her grandmother and her youngest sister, while her two other sisters go to school. To support their family, Linn’s parents work as day labourers. About six months ago, while she was studying at school, Linn started to experience dizziness and severe headaches. When she looked at the blackboard and her notebook, she had blurry double vision. However, she did not say anything to the teacher as she is new at the school and she was afraid of the teacher. When her friends found out what was happening to her, they wanted to tell the teacher, but Linn forbid them from doing so. After a month of struggling with this problem, Linn finally told her mother. She had kept it from her as she knew about their financial difficulties and she did not want to become a burden. Linn's parents took her to an eyeglass shop in Myawaddy. There, they examine her eyesight, told Linn that she does not need eyeglasses and urged her to go to Mae Sot Hospital (MSH) in Thailand. Doctors want Linn to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Linn's CT scan and care, scheduled for September 2nd. As for Linn, she enjoys studying a lot. She said, “English and mathematics are my favorite subjects. I’m also interested in karate as self-defense course and I want to learn it. But, when I have time, I have to help out with household chores. I also have to set aside time to studying.”
