February 23, 2020

Sar is a four-year-old girl from Thailand who lives with her parents and three sisters. Her mother is a homemaker, looking after household chores, while her father works as an agriculture day laborer. In her spare time, Sar likes to play with toys with her friends.

Seven months ago, when Sar was on the way to buy snacks, a hen suddenly flew over to her and poked her right eye, protecting her baby chickens. Although Sar’s eye turned red, her parents did not take her to any hospitals. They bought eye drops for her, but the medicine did not make her feel any better. Sar underwent a CT scan at Mae Sot Hospital but the doctor was not able to help her. She was referred to Chiang Mai and there she underwent an MRI. After the MRI, the doctor recommended surgery to remove her right eye. She received enucleation of her eye on July 25th, 2019. After enucleation, the doctor recommended an MRI to see if there is any problem post operation. She is now admitting in the hospital and will undergo the MRI on 25th February, 2020.

Doctors want Sar to have an MRI, an imaging procedure that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce images of bodily organs, to help them continue to follow an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $968 to cover the cost of Sar’s MRI and care, scheduled for February 25th.

Sar’s father said, “My daughter is healthy and playing happily with friends after we came back from treatment in Chiang Mai. The doctor told me that they will do MRI for my daughter to check if there is any abnormal growth or problem after surgery and if there is no problem after the MRI result, the doctor will implant an artificial eye in the next eight month for my daughter.”

Nelson

Nelson is a small business owner from Kenya and a father of four children aged between 1 and 16 years. He operates a butchery in Komarock where he has employed someone to help him after the accident. The wife and children are currently living with his parents in Muranga. His wife is not in any employment and their family solely depends on his business. Nelson lives in a rental house in Komarock and his earnings are not sufficient to meet the cost of living and pay for his surgery. In 2017 Nelson was involved in a road traffic accident in Komarock as he was coming from work. He was rushed to KNH hospital where he underwent surgery. Later his surgical site got an infection and a plan for nail placement to help his fracture was agreed on. He went to St Peter’s Uthiru in 2018 where he underwent the surgery and it was successful. He didn’t heal well so he came to Kijabe Hosopital for clinic where he was booked for surgery. He underwent a 1st stage and 2nd stage bone transport in 2019 and this was funded by the national health insurance fund. Currently, he has an infection and is due for urgent debridement and washout to ensure he can heal. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Nelson receive treatment. On June 3rd, surgeons will perform a debridement and skin graft procedure. If not treated, Nelson will be at risk of further wound infection that could lead to amputation. Now, Nelson needs help to fund this $1,242 procedure. ‘I will be happy to go back to work being the sole breadwinner of our family.’ Nelson said.
