Soe underwent knee fracture surgery.

After surgery, Soe does not feel any severe pain like before. There is only some pain in the incision area where his surgery took place. He can move around and walk with crutches. He believes that he will walk properly again soon and said that he will support his family when he can walk again.

Currently, Soe’s main focus is to follow the medical advice and rehabilitation exercise recommended by the doctors and nurses.

Soe said, “I want to thank everyone who had been a part of my surgery, especially Burma Children Medical Fund and Watsi donors. I could not imagine my life unable to walk again because I have a young children to look after.”

Soe is a father of three children from Thailand. He and his family relocated to a refugee camp in 2007 due to conflict between armed groups around their village. Although his family receives a small ration at the camp, it is not enough, so Soe does gardening and farming at a nearby Thai village to bring extra income for his family. Whenever Soe has free time, he loves to play cane ball or helps his wife with their household chores.

On January 11th, when Soe was coming home from work with his friend on his friend’s motorbike, the brakes failed when they were going downhill. The accident caused a fracture in the small bone located in front of his right knee joint. He is in pain and it is difficult for him to walk without using crutches.

With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Soe will undergo surgery to reset his fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for February 20th and will cost $1,500. After this treatment, Soe will be able walk again without any assistant devices. This will also allow him to get back to work so he can provide for his family.

Soe said, “I am desperate to be able walk again and work for my children. I cannot imagine how life would turn out if I could not walk anymore.”
