Sanay is a three-month-old baby girl from Burma. She lives with her family in Mine Kan Village, Hpa-An Township, Karen State. Only her 19-year-old brother is currently working and supporting their family. He works at a chicken factory in Bangkok.

Sanay was recently diagnosed with hydrocephalus, which has caused fluid to build up in her brain. Without immediate surgery to alleviate the intracranial pressure that the excess fluid is causing, she is at risk of developing severe, potentially fatal medical complications.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund the insertion of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt for Sanay, which will drain the fluid that has accumulated in her brain. The procedure is scheduled to take place on September 6, and, once completed, will greatly improve Sanay’s quality of life.

“I want my daughter to become a nurse when she grows up,” says Sanay’s father.
