Moe is a 21-year old man from Burma. He has eight siblings, but his parents passed away when he was 15. Moe worked in a restaurant kitchen until a medical condition prevented him from continuing with his work.

Moe was born with a dark birthmark on his face. When he was 17, the birthmark began to grow, eventually creating pressure on his forehead and eyelid.

Moe also experienced a growth on his thigh. When he was 15, he was playing soccer with his friends, and was kicked in the leg by another player. He felt a shooting pain in his leg, and has experienced ongoing pain since. He visited a local hospital, where he received an x-ray, and was informed that he would need surgery to address the cyst on his leg. Moe decided to use traditional medicine to treat the pain, which did not work.

Having heard of Watsi’s program with our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), he decided to seek help. Doctors suggested the cyst be surgically removed

On October 4, Moe will undergo a cyst excision procedure. He needs help to fund this $1,500 surgery.

Moe said, “I love cooking, and am eager to return to work to the restaurant industry. With time, I dream of becoming a chef”.
