U Aung is 41 years old. He lives with his wife and three children in Burma. He works as a day laborer loading rice packages.
In early 2016, U Aung started to experience discomfort and some pain in his groin whilst loading the rice packages. He finds it difficult to bend his knees.
A month ago, he visited a hospital, where he was diagnosed with avascular necrosis of the hip. The doctor explained that he would need surgery but U Aung could not afford it.
Fortunately, U Aung found out about our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF). He was told he would need hip replacement surgery.
Our medical partner, BCMF, is requesting $1,500 to fund U Aung’s surgery, scheduled for October 12.
