Maung Chit underwent a successful fixation surgery.

Muang Chit underwent a successful second surgery for rod removal after breaking his right leg. Muang Chit is excited to return home and is now in the process of recovery. He cannot walk properly, but his mobility is improved with the help of crutches. He says that even though he cannot walk properly, he no longer feels any pain. Once he has regained his strength, Muang Chit plans to find work to help his family.

He said, “The treatment that I have received is very beneficial for me and my family. If I hadn’t have received treatment, I wouldn’t be able to recover and return to my work. I know that I couldn’t have afforded to pay for my treatment without the Mae Tao Clinic, BCMF, and the donors. You are all important in making it possible for me to get treatment.”

Maung Chit is 43 years old and the father of a large family. He lives with his family in Burma. He works very hard as a day laborer, employed by several large farms.

In April 2016, Maung Chit experienced an accident while unloading timber from a wagon. A portion of the load fell on top of him and broke his right leg above the ankle.

In June 2016, he made the four-hour journey to a clinic, where an X-ray of his leg was taken. He was referred to our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), to examine the large bulge on his leg, which was preventing him from walking.

In December 2016, Maung Chit underwent an internal and external fixation surgery. Maung Chit now needs another surgery to remove the rod placed during his first operation. Our medical partner, BCMF, is requesting $1,500 for this procedure.
