Htin is a 52-year-old man from Burma. He is a motorbike taxi driver, and he lives with his wife and two daughters. He is the sole earner for his family.
Early this month, Htin got into a motorcycle accident while he was riding. Currently, he experiences pain in his right elbow and pinky finger, which were both fractured in the accident. He also scraped his leg in the accident, which causes some discomfort as well.
With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Htin will undergo surgery to reset his fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for June 19 and will cost $1,500. After surgery, Htin will be able to do his job a again and can support his family financially.
He says, “If it had been my left hand, I would not have considered surgery, but I need my right arm in order to do my job. It is just important for me to get back to work.”
