San Win is a 14-year-old from Burma. He lives with his parents and a seven-year-old sister. His parents work as daily agricultural laborers growing rice and corn.
Since 2004, San Win has had an inguinal hernia. Fortunately, on January 8, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at Mae Sot General Hospital, our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund San Win’s hernia repair surgery. The procedure is scheduled to take place on January 8 and, once completed, will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
San Win says, “The pain annoys me and I feel distressed. Nonetheless, I always have the ambition of becoming a technician.”
