The result shows that the mass is likely an orbital hemangioma. The doctor prescribed her medication and scheduled her for follow up in April.

Hnin Naddy is a one-year-old girl from Burma. She lives with her parents and two brothers in Bilin, Mawlamyaing Township, Mon State. Her mother sells snacks and her father builds roofs.

Hnin Naddy was born with a birthmark over her right eyelid. Since then, it has grown considerably. Now, the mass completely covers the top of Hnin Naddy’s eyelid and prevents her from seeing out of her right eye.

Doctors want Hnin Naddy 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 Hnin Naddy’s MRI and care, scheduled for January 29.

Her parents say, “We want her to be able to read well and attend school in the future. We hope for her to become a teacher when she grows up.”

Chit

Chit is a 68-year-old from Burma. He lives with his sister, brother-in-law, niece, his niece's husband and their son. All of his family members are farmers who grow rice for their own consumption and peanuts which they sell. Chit used to work as a cowherd, but stopped when he fell ill one year ago. Sometimes his niece's husband works as a day laborer. They also have two pigs and 10 chickens, which they sell in case they need emergency cash. Their income is just enough to cover their daily expenses and pay for basic health care. Three years ago, Chit start to experience frequent back pain. After hearing about Mae Tao Clinic (MTC), he decided to seek help there. At the clinic he received an ultrasound and a urine test. After reviewing the result, the medic told him there was nothing wrong with his bladder and provided him with medication. However, the medication did not work and his back pain kept returning on and off. In 2019, Chit developed severe pain in his lower left back in addition to difficulty passing urine accompanied by a burning sensation. He went to the nearest clinic where he received a urine test and an ultrasound. After checking his result, the doctor told him that he had a urinary tract infection and inflammation of the bladder. Doctors provided him with antibiotics and gave him an injection. Three week later, when he did not feel better, his niece brought him to Mae Sot Hospital (MSH) in Thailand, where he underwent another ultrasound and urine test. The results indicted that he has a stone in his bladder. The doctor gave him a follow-up appointment for 24th of January 2020 and he received two months' worth of medication in the meantime. When he returned for his appointment, he received an x-ray. Following this, the doctor told him that he needs surgery and a pre-surgical deposit of 15,000 baht (approx. $500 USD) would be required by the hospital. The doctor then scheduled his surgery for March 31st, 2020. Unable to pay for the surgery, Chit and his niece returned to MTC to ask for help. At MTC, Chit received a urinary catheter and a medic referred him to Watsi's Medical Partner Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF) for assistance in accessing further treatment and support. Chit's niece said, “When I was young my uncle looked after me well. So I want to help and support his treatment as much as I can. I am very grateful that he has received this chance to have his treatment supported by you. As we have financial problems at home, I cannot find anyone to borrow money from easily if you would not support him.”
