Saw Htee is 45-year-old husband and father from Burma. He is a semi-subsistence farmer, who sells his crop of beans once a year for income.
On August 26, 2018, Saw Htee and two of his son-in-laws were cutting wood in the jungle. All of a sudden, a thigh-sized tree, which Saw Kleet was cutting, fell on him. Trying to dodge the tree, his right leg slid between two rocks, and he fractured his lower right leg. Currently, Saw Htee has pain in his lower right leg and back. He cannot sit down or move.
With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Saw Htee will undergo surgery to reset his fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for August 27 and will cost $1,500. As the main breadwinner for his family, Saw Htee will return to work on their farm.
“I feel very worried now,” says Saw Htee’s wife. “Now I don’t have anyone to look after our bean farm. However, I’m a bit relieved that your organization is providing support for his treatment.”
