Meet 13-year-old Kwan from Thailand. Kwan is an avid basketball player and he also enjoys going motorcycling with his friends. Kwan is currently in year five at school.

Kwan recently fractured his forearm during a basketball game. Doctors at a local hospital advised Kwan that he has a broken bone in his left forearm, for which he requires surgery.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, has arranged for Kwan to undergo surgery on October 4 to reposition the bone into its normal alignment. Kwan’s parents are day laborers and cannot afford their son’s $1,500 surgery.

Kwan shares with us, “I want to be a singer when I grow up!” Let’s help him to achieve his dreams.
