Saw Phar is a 50-year-old man from Burma. He lives with his family. They grow food for subsistence on communal land. In his free time, he likes to do handy work, making hats and baskets with bamboo.
Saw Phar was diagnosed with a bile duct stone and a gallstone. He experiences back and abdominal pain. Saw Phar has been advised to undergo a biliary obstruction repair, a procedure to repair the blockage of the bile ducts, which carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder. If left untreated, Saw Phar’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put him at risk for further health complications in the future.
After seeking treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), Saw Phar is scheduled to undergo his biliary obstruction repair on July 12. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Saw Phar’s procedure and care.
“I really miss home, but when I go back I will go back with happiness and without pain,” said Saw Phar.
