Aung is a nine-year-old boy from Burma. He lives with his parents and his two sisters in a village in Karen State, on the Thai-Burma border. Aung’s father is a carpenter and his mother is a homemaker. Aung also has two sisters and used to go to school until their school closed in August 2022 due to armed conflict in their area. In his free time, Aung enjoys watching football matches.

Aung was born at a clinic in Thailand with a mass between his eyes. As he grew, the mass increased in size and started to cause him pain. The area around the mass is red, swollen and irritated. His eyes will frequently water and will turn red whenever he looks down or reads for a longer period of time.

Doctors want Aung 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 Aung’s CT scan and care, scheduled for November 10th.

He shares, “I want to be a football player when I grow up. But I also want to help my father earn more money for our family, maybe by building houses.”
