Chit underwent hernia repair surgery.

Now, he can eat, sleep, and play better. His family is very happy and relieved. To fully repair the hernia, he needs to undergo a second surgery, which will be scheduled once he has recovered from the first.

Chit’s mother said, “I hope that my son will be able to have another surgery and he will be healthy after he finish his second surgery.”

Chit is a one-year-old boy from Thailand. He lives with his parents in Mae Sot, a border town. He loves to play with his parents.

Since he was one month old, Chit has had an inguinal hernia. Now, his hernia is getting bigger. He is in pain and cries a lot, and he is no longer able to play. Fortunately, on January 6, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at Mae Sot General Hospital, our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund Chit’s hernia repair surgery. The procedure is scheduled to take place on January 6 and, once completed, will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.

His mother says, “I want my son to be a teacher when he grows up.”
