Meet Aye, a 40-year-old Burmese woman. After the birth of her son, Aye began experiencing symptoms related to a prolapsed uterus. These symptoms have lasted for over five years.
Aye currently lives with her father and son, and the three of them rely on financial support from her two older sisters. Aye first visited a hospital that recommended that she undergo surgery. However, the family was unable to provide money for the surgery.
She then attended a clinic, where she was referred to our medical partner’s care center, Mae Sot General Hospital, to undergo further examination. It was confirmed that Aye had a prolapsed uterus, and she was recommended to undergo surgery to remove her uterus and to end her discomfort.
In order to fund Aye’s vaginal hysterectomy, our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500. This will support the cost of the procedure, the hospital stay, and other related exams and medications.
Aye’s surgery is scheduled for June 7 at Mae Sot General Hospital.
