Aye underwent an MRI.

Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Her doctors have not yet developed a treatment plan.

Aye’s grandmother said, “Aye really wants to go home and she always says that she misses her relative in the village. We are thankful to donors for helping Aye and now we will take her home to spend time with her relative in the village.”

Aye is a seven-year-old girl from Burma. She is a first grade student, and she lives with her grandmother, aunt, uncle, and four cousins while her parents work in Bangkok, Thailand.

Aye was recently diagnosed with hydrocephalus, which has caused fluid to build up in her brain, after a CT scan. The scan also showed a small mass in her brain.

Doctors want Aye to undergo an MRI, an imaging procedure that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce images of bodily organs. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $968 to cover the cost of Aye’s MRI and care, scheduled for March 5.

Her grandmother says, “I am very worried for my granddaughter especially that they find a mass in her brain.”

Nuriya

Nuriya is a cute child from Ethiopia. Nuriya's mother was in Saudi Arabia for four years doing domestic work and her employers did not pay her during this time. She asked for her salary several times but they refused to pay her. Finally she decided to go home and they send her home without her payment. Nuriya’s father was also immigrant in Saudi Arabia for eight years. He went to Saudi Arabia illegally by sea and was caught and deported back to Ethiopia several times but he kept using his savings to go back. Once Nuriya’s parents were back in Ethiopia, they decided to stay and start a family. Their families have decided to help them and accommodate them until they find work. Nuriya’s father has not found work and now he plans to buy oxen and start farming. Nuriya was born with an anorectal malformation, a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. He needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction. Nuriya is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct his condition on October 07. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Nuriya's procedure and care. After his recovery, Nuriya will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future. Nuriya’s mother said “We can’t afford the medical bill. We are here through the support of another organization. We are living under the support of our relatives. Nuriya’s colostomy operation was done by the government. I believe the child will get better soon."
