Thu underwent abdominal surgery.

He feels and looks so much better. Before surgery, he could not go to school and was not well enough to study, but now he can go to school.

Thu says, “I want to be a doctor someday.”

Thu is a 14 year-old boy who lives with his family in Karen State, Burma. The income the family earns from selling chicken and vegetables is hardly enough to feed the whole family.

In the last six years, Thu has suffered from a number of abdominal infections. Thu stopped going to school after second grade, partly due to the difficulties of his recurring medical problems.

This year, he was finally diagnosed with bladder stones, which require surgical removal. On September 3, surgeons will operate to address his condition. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, requests $1,500 to fund Thu’s medical treatment.
