Win is a 34-year-old man who has a big stone in his right kidney. He is originally from Karen State but now lives in A Paung Township, Mon State, Burma with his wife, two children, and mother-in-law. He used to work as a watchman in Thailand but stopped working a year ago because of his poor health.

One year ago, Win started to feel a mild back pain. The pain worsened over time. Win visited a hospital in Mawlamyaing, Mon State. After performing an ultrasound test, the doctor confirmed that there is a stone in his right kidney and told him to go to Yangon for treatment. Knowing that they would not be able to afford the surgery, Win and his wife decided to go to Mae Tao Clinic (MTC), our medical partner’s care center, instead.

Now, Win is scheduled to undergo a ureteroscopy to remove the stone on May 26. He needs help raising $1,500 to fund this procedure.

He says, “I believe I will get well soon. I plan to go back to my village in Karen State and start working on a rubber plantation.”
