Ah is a 23-year-old man who lives in Mae Sot, Thailand. He was born in Burma, but he decided to move three years ago since he no longer had any relatives left there. In Mae Sot, he lived with his grandmother until she passed away. Now Ah lives alone and works as a construction worker.
On June 5, Ah was working on the roof of a building at a construction site when he slipped and fell, sustaining a severe open fracture to his left forearm. His was immediately brought to our medical partner’s care center, Mae Tao Clinic (MTC), where he received treatment to reduce the bleeding. After initial treatment, Ah was referred to our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), for further treatment.
Ah is in a lot of pain and unable to work. He says, “I am very worried and stressed now because I have no one to look after me.”
Thankfully, surgeons will be able to perform an internal fixation procedure on Ah’s forearm, resetting the bone and giving the injury a chance to heal properly. BCMF requests $1,500 to cover the cost of Ah’s surgery and medical care.
