Thida is a five-year-old child and her father is a blacksmith while her mother is a seller in the market. One of the things she likes to do when she is not in school is telling jokes to her mother :)
For the past year, Thida has had difficulty swallowing. She does not sleep well at night because she cannot breathe well. Her parents are concerned because it is hard for her to concentrate in school when she doesn’t sleep well. As a result, Thida often feels poorly and misses school.
When Thida’s parents learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four hours with her mother hoping for treatment. On March 30th, doctors will perform a tonsillectomy. After recovery, she will be able to breathe better and sleep more restfully at night. Now, Thida needs help to fund this $241 procedure.
Thida’s mother shared, “I hope after surgery that my daughter can breathe and swallow better than before. She often misses school, and she wants an education.”
