Pisey is a happy 11-year-old girl from Cambodia who loves playing outside with her friends and brothers. She was born with microtia, which means she lacks an ear canal to one of her ears. As a result, she has trouble hearing, which affects her education and social life.

$450 will completely cover the reconstructive surgery that Pisey needs to hear properly with both of her ears.

Let’s help Pisey get the surgery she needs to be a healthy and happy sixth grader!

Hla

Hla is a 41-year-old woman from Burma. She lives with her family in a village in Kawkareik Township of Karen State in Burma. One year ago, Hla felt a painless growth when she touched her lower abdomen. That same day, she went to see a traditional birth attendant (TBA) about this. The TBA told her that she has a gastric problem. The next day, Hla went to see a traditional healer and received blessed water in the hopes it would make the growth disappear. Although she drank the blessed water for around two months, the growth remained. As she did not think that the growth would make her seriously ill, she did not go to a clinic. In January 2020, Hla felt like the growth was increasing in size. She decided to visit Kawkareik Private Clinic where the doctor performed an ultrasound. She was told that she has a mass in her uterus. The doctor provided her with painkillers and was told to only take it when she is in pain. Currently, Hla suffers from back pain and the mass increases in size day by day. Doctors want Hla 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 Hla's CT scan and care, scheduled for February 14th. Hla said, “I feel very stressed that I don’t have money to seek treatment. I hope that I will get better once I receive proper treatment.”
