Aye is a 30-year-old rice farmer from Burma. She lives with her husband and their four-year-old daughter. Aye and her husband work on her parents’ farm, cultivating rice for home consumption.
Aye has recently been diagnosed with uterine fibroids and requires a total abdominal hysterectomy in order to treat her condition and prevent future medical complications from arising. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to cover the cost of Aye’s surgery. The procedure is scheduled to take place on July 19 and, once completed, will hopefully give Aye peace of mind and allow her to live much more comfortably
After her surgery, Aye is eager to get back to work so that she can pay for her daughter’s education. “I hope my daughter will complete her education and maybe become a nurse or doctor,” shares Aye.
