Aung is a 13-month-old boy from Burma. He lives with his parents, his 13-year-old sister, and 8-year-old brother in Myawaddy, Karen State.
Since he was born, Aung has had an inguinal hernia. Aung’s hernia is gradually increasing in size. Fortunately, on June 12, 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 Aung’s hernia repair surgery. The procedure is scheduled to take place on June 12 and, once completed, will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
“We would like our son to finish school and become an educated man,” says Aung’s father.
