Meet Ma Hla, a 40-year-old woman who lives in Thailand. Ma Hla’s husband passed away 10 years ago, and she is the primary caregiver of her four-year-old niece. Ma Hla was referred to our medical partner, Burma Border Projects (BBP), for a medical condition called uterine myoma (fibroids).
BBP shares that Ma Hla “first noticed her condition one year ago when she began to feel pain in her abdomen. Since that time she also experiences pain in her back and she cannot eat well or do anything active. Ma Hla has had to stop working for the past few months because of her condition.”
$1,500 in funding will cover Ma Hla’s treatment expenses, outpatient pre- and post-surgery visits, hospitalizations, transportation, food and accommodations.
“I want to work and earn money to support my niece’s future,” shares Ma Hla. “I want to support my niece so that she will be able to become educated and will become a good person. I would like to go back to work after I receive treatment and am well again. I hope that I will be healthy and will be able to live with my niece for my whole life.”
Let’s help Ma Hla get the surgery she needs!
