about Than's recovery.

May 11, 2021

Than is a 44-year-old man who lives with his wife and three children in Mon State, Burma. He works hard as a day laborer and his wife sells vegetables around their neighborhood to support their family. His oldest child goes to school, while his other two children are still too young. In the future, Than hopes he can open a small shop.

In mid-April 2021, Than was cutting wood with an ax to make charcoal for cooking. While cutting wood, his ax accidentally hit his left foot. He went to the nearest clinic, where the nurse stitched up his wound. After this, his wound was not painful. However, two weeks later, his left foot started to have pain and when he checked his foot, he saw pus around the area he had received stitches. Currently, the area around the injury on Than’s left foot has turned black. He experiences severe pain, especially at night when the pain prevents him from sleeping.

At the hospital, the doctors found that he had low blood supply, an ulcer, and cellulitis in the injured foot. In order to heal, Than must undergo wound debridement, a procedure which will clean the wound and remove the most damaged tissue to create opportunities for new skin to grow. His procedure is scheduled for May 11th, 2021 and his family needs $694 to fund his treatment.

Than said, “I want the doctor to perform surgery on my foot as quickly as possible because I cannot handle the pain anymore.”
