Khaing is a 19-year-old farmer who lives his parents, two siblings, and cousin. In Khaing’s free time, he enjoys playing football and volleyball with friends.

In the summer of 2017, Khaing noticed that he had difficulty breathing and was constantly having a runny nose. He visited the hospital, where the doctor diagnosed him with a nasal polyp.

Khaing is now scheduled to undergo sinus surgery on March 5 to treat the condition. He needs help raising $1,500 to fund the procedure.

Khaing said, “I feel self-conscience because it is not easy to go out, travel or visit others. I don’t feel happy so I would rather stay at home. I hope to get better so I can continue working as a farmer and pay back my family’s debt.”
