Pwint is a 22-year-old seamstress living with her family in Burma. She loves her work and in her free time enjoys sewing and embroidery.
When Pwint was three years old, she began to experience difficulty breathing. Her mother took her to a local clinic, where they prescribed an oral medication to help alleviate her symptoms. In 2017, her condition worsened so her mother brought her to the local hospital. She was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect and doctors recommended that she undergo surgery. Without treatment, Pwint will continue to experience chest pain and severe fatigue.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund Pwint’s surgery, which will be performed on August 8. Pwint is hopeful that the surgery will go well so that she can pursue her dream of becoming a professional seamstress.
