August 26, 2019

Bish is 39-year-old man from Burma. He lives in a monastery and helps out the head monk with charity work and a clinic.

In July 2018, Bishu started to suffer from abdominal pain. It all happened after he carried rice packs, clothes bags and dry food packages while he helped flood victims around Hpa-An. Since then, he has been on medication for his abdominal pain. A year later, in July 2019, he was in severe abdominal pain and was admitted at a hospital. He was given medication, which made him feel better, and he was diagnosed with stones in his pancreas. The doctor did not explain to him of what he should do next so when he was discharged, he visited another hospital and the doctor there wanted to do more investigative tests.

Doctors want Bish 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 Bish’s CT scan and care, scheduled for August 28.

Bish said, “After I recover from this health problem, I will continue to help the monk with his charity work. I will also help the charitable clinic as much as I can.”
