Ar Kar underwent a CT scan.

The scan showed that Ar Kay’s lacrimal glands, the gland that produces tears, is pushing against his eyes and has caused his eyes to increase in size. The doctor said that Ar Kar will need to receive surgery to get better, and have the glands removed.

Ar Kar is a 14-year-old boy from Burma. He lives with his parents, two brothers and sister in Htee Poe T’ Ray Village, Hlaingbwe Township, Karen State. In his free times, Ar Kar loves to play football with his friends.

Currently, Ar Kar’s eyes are sensitive to light, and bright lights hurt his eyes. He cannot see far, and he sometimes has a headache.

Doctors want Ar Kar to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Ar Kar’s CT scan and care, scheduled for April 24.

Ar Kar’s mother said, “I cannot work because I have to accompany him to the hospital and the clinic. I worry that he will not see like others if his condition does not improve. I want his eyes to be normal like other children.”

Kidus

Kidus is a cute baby boy who loves to walk. His dad enjoys walking with him and holding his hand, and Kidus loves it when his mom carries him on her back. He also loves to watch cartoons. Kidus's dad and mom love each other so much and have a happy life together. Kidus's father is a tailor. His income is very limited and barely enough to sustain the family through the month, but love fills their home, and their lives, with happiness. When Kidus was born his parents learned that he had bladder exstrophy, a rare condition where children are born with an open bladder. His parents faced a challenge that they did not expect in their life, but they are facing it with courage. Kidus needs surgery to perform a procedure to divert his urination to the anal opening & make a pouch bladder from the bowel. He will undergo this surgery on September 28th with our medical partner African Mission Healthcare (AMH) and his family needs $1,500 for the procedure. Kidus's dad said, “For thirteen days after his birth we worked hard to get him treatment but no one in the health centres could help us. Some health workers gave us hope and some health workers did not give us any hope." He is hopeful for after surgery, “After he gets his surgery and recovers I want to tell him the truth about his condition and what we went through as a result of it when he grows up. Also, I want to tell him how he got the treatment, about the people who helped him, how God helped him and gave him this healthy life. I will tell him this so he grows up grateful and he lives to support and help others. I want him to be good and caring and God-fearing. I want him to be there for others. I believe kindness is contagious.”
