January 26, 2017

Poe is a 34-year-old man from Burma. He works as a border security guard and protects the Burmese border.

While on the way to get a haircut, Poe hit a patch of loose gravel and was thrown off his bike. Poe landed on the side of the road and was knocked unconscious. When Poe woke up after the accident, he knew that his leg was broken.

He was unable to stand, and a passerby helped him get to our medical partner’s care center, Mae Sot Hospital, for an X-ray. The X-ray showed displaced fractures to the tibia and fibula of his right leg.

The X-rays revealed that Poe will need surgery to fix the fractures. On January 27, Poe will undergo an internal fixation procedure to mend his broken bones. He needs help to fund this $1,500 procedure.

“Thank you for helping me. I hope I will recover from this very soon so that I can play cane ball with my friends,” he says.
