Kyay is a 52-year-old farmer from Burma. She has four children. She owns a farm with her husband, where they grow rice and beans.
Currently, Kyay is in a lot of pain. She has a bile duct stone, which prevents her from sleeping, eating, and walking comfortably. She is very worried about her condition and how it will affect her family.
Kyay has been advised to undergo a biliary obstruction repair, a procedure to repair the blockage of the bile ducts, which carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder. If left untreated, Kyay’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put her at risk for further health complications in the future.
After seeking treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), Kyay is scheduled to undergo her biliary obstruction repair on February 8. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Kyay’s procedure and care.
Kyay says, “I’m happy I will be able to take care of my son and daughter, cook, and clean the house again.”
