Kyel is a 15-year-old student from Thailand. He lives with his two younger brothers in an orphanage in Mae Sot.
Two days ago, Kyel was playing football with some friends. He slid and his friend tripped and landed on top of his arm, fracturing it.
Kyel is in a great deal of pain and is unable to sleep at night. He is sad that he won’t be able to play football in the foreseeable future. He also won’t be able to do his laundry or garden.
With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Kyel will undergo surgery to reset his fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for November 18 and will cost $1,500. After recovery, Kyel will be able to return to school.
Kyel says, “I my dream of being a professional singer one day.”
