Moh is a 40-year-old mother of three children from Burma. She lives with her brother and her three children. Her husband passed away two years ago. They work on a small farm, where they grow and harvest betel nuts, leaves, and vegetables, which they sells to support the family. Moh’s three children are students. In her free time, she enjoys cleaning the house.
Since April 2018, Moh has been experiencing a lot of abdominal pain. She has been diagnosed with ovarian cysts. She has been advised to undergo a total abdominal hysterectomy, the surgical removal of her uterus and cervix. If left untreated, Moh’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put her at risk for further health complications in the future.
Fortunately, Moh is scheduled to undergo her hysterectomy on June 25. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care. Once recovered, Moh will be able to return home and help her brother work on the farm.
Moh says, “I cannot sleep well because I am always thinking about my condition. Sometime I have back pain and it is not comfortable to walk. I really want to be healthy again, so I can go back to work and save money to support my children.”
