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.”
