Tychannu received a skin graft to regain full use of his hand and wrist.

“All the nurses loved Tychannu - he was so friendly!” Tychannu’s doctors report.”His surgical wounds healed nicely and his skin graft taken successfully. Releasing the scar tissue allows him to have greatly improved hand function in his day-to-day life.”

Say hello to Tychannu, a three-year-old from Cambodia! He loves playing with toy cars and drinking sugarcane juice.

When Tychannu was one, he touched a motorbike exhaust pipe and severely burned his hand and wrist. The burns healed, but he has not regained full functionality of his hand. He cannot grip properly due to thickened scar tissue. Tychannu needs reconstructive surgery, including skin grafts.

For $300, doctors will perform this surgery to give Tychannu full use of his hand again. Let’s help Tychannu get this treatment so that he can grow up using his hand!

Saw Myo

Saw Myo is a 14-year-old from Burma. He lives with his grandparents, parents, two sisters, and brother. His grandparents are retired. His father farms paddy and rubber trees on their land, while his mother is a homemaker. Saw Myo and his siblings are all in school, but Saw Myo recently had to stop attending due to a medical condition. Saw Myo has had a lump on his lower spinal cord since he was nine years old due to an injury from a slingshot. He received medicinal ointment from a traditional healer that helped with the stiffness and prevented further growth. However, Saw Myo fell off his bicycle a few years later, and the lump grew in size. His family took him to several clinics, and an X-ray indicated a potential spinal cord problem. The doctors recommended a computerized tomography (CT) scan, but due to COVID-19 policies, Saw Myo could not receive the scan. His parents continued to try and help Saw Myo receive treatment but learned that his condition could not be treated locally. Saw Myo's mother then contacted a neighbor who worked as a medic at a clinic in Burma and began raising money for his care. The doctors want Saw Myo to undergo an MRI, which is an imaging procedure that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce images of bodily organs. This scan will help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), is helping Saw Myo receive this treatment. On November 15th, he will undergo an MRI. BCMF requests $814 to cover the cost of Saw Myo's MRI procedure and care. Saw Myo's mother said: “We have been so worried since we saw the mass increasing in size. It was tiring to seek treatment in Burma, and we now have borrowed a lot of money without Saw Myo having received treatment."
