Moe did not receive treatment as expected.

Moe’s treatment did not happen because his parents were unable to take time off from work to travel to the hospital. If they do manage to come to the hospital, he will be re-eligible for Watsi funding.

Moe is a 10-month-old baby boy who lives with his parents, uncle, grandmother, and older brother in Burma. His father used to work as a server in Bangkok, but he moved back home three months ago to help take care of Moe. Since Moe’s mother cannot work while she is looking after her two sons, they are forced to live off of their savings.

Three months after Moe was born, his mother noticed that he had a bump on his left eyebrow. She took him to visit the doctor at Mae Tao Clinic, our medical partner’s care center. He was sent to Mae Sot Hospital for further investigation. The doctor at the hospital diagnosed him with a cyst and scheduled him for a cyst removal surgery on April 10.

Now, Moe’s family needs help raising $1,500 to fund this procedure.

“When he grows up, we want to send him to school and we will support him whatever he decides to become,” says Moe’s father.

Shee

Shee is a 23-year-old woman from Burma. In 2016, Shee and her family moved to a refugee camp in Thailand. There she has been able to continue her studies. Shee graduated from the junior college and now helps her cousin-in-law weave and sell traditional Karen clothes. She shared that it has been difficult for her family to find work within the camp at this time, but she hopes to become a teacher soon. In her free time, Shee enjoys playing with her nephews. In February, Shee began to develop a mass and experience pain in her abdomen, so she visited the camp's hospital. Upon review, she was diagnosed with a urinary tract infection and given medication. Since the mass continued to grow, Shee was referred to her our medical partner's hospital, Mae Sariang Hospital, in early April. After receiving an ultrasound, the doctors determined Shee has an ovarian cyst and needs to undergo surgery to heal. Currently, Shee experiences severe pain that makes it challenging for her to sleep, eat, or continue her weaving. Fortunately, our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), can help Shee receive treatment. On April 20th, she will undergo surgery to remove the cyst. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to fund the total cost of this procedure. Shee shared, "I am not worried about my operation because I hope it will fix my health problem. I would like to become a teacher in the future because I like teaching. After I recover, I plan to apply at a school in the refugee camp."
