Myo underwent fracture repair surgery.

Since Myo had the operation, he feels less pain and he can move his leg much better. After they return to their home, Myo is planning to stay at home to look after their son, while his wife will try to find a good job that can support the whole family. After Myo’s leg is completely healed, he will return back to work in the agricultural plantations.

Myo’s wife shares, “We would like to thank the donors and all those who helped my husband so much, and we feel so much gratitude.”

Myo is 37 years old. He and his wife have two sons. The couple work as agricultural laborers in Thailand. Myo moved to Thailand eight years ago to seek better job opportunities. They work on rice, beans, and corn plantations.

Myo decided to stop working for a month and spend his time repairing their old house instead. His was working on the roof and needed some bamboo as material. Myo went out with his two friends to retrieve some bamboo from a grove near their home.

They loaded the bamboo onto a big trolley. On the drive back, one of the trolley tires exploded, and his friend lost control of the handle bars. The impact pushed Myo forward and off the trolley, and the wheels ran over his left leg. His two friends had to lift the trolley up to let Myo out. They got Myo onto the motorbike and drove him to a clinic.

When he arrived at the clinic, he was still bleeding continuously. The medics helped clean and bandage his wounds before transporting him to our medical partner’s care center, Mae Sot Hospital (MSH).

At MSH, he received an X-ray and was found to have an open fracture of the left tibia. He is now scheduled to have an internal fixation to help his tibia heal properly on May 12.

Myo’s wife is very concerned about not being able to afford her husband’s medical treatment. They need help raising the $1,500 necessary for Myo’s surgery. After treatment, Myo will be able to finish repairing his house and go back to work.
