Fifteen years ago, Myint Soe fainted while working at a factory. The medic at the factory warned her about cardiac problems, but she was unable to afford the care she needed.

Since then, Myint Soe has been coping with fatigue, chest pain and difficulty breathing. Recently divorced, she now works in the markets selling dry snacks to try to support herself and three children. Her family helps when they can, but she barely earns enough money to get by - let alone pay for an expensive surgery to treat her heart condition.

When asked about the difficulties her illness has caused, she responds in tears. The stress from the pain, and the debt from related medical bills is increasing. Her main wish is to be able to get back to work to provide for her children and keep them in school.

Our partner in Burma is asking $1,500 to cover the costs of surgery. Let’s help Myint Soe get healthy so she can take care of herself and her family!
