Say hi to Davenly, a two-year-old boy from Haiti! According to our medical partner, Project Medishare, “Davenly’s mother has four kids and is living with her husband, who is a small farmer living in the countryside. Davenly’s mother is a seller and she works hard with her husband to subsist the needs of her kids.”

Unfortunately, Davenly deals with cleft palate; “due to the cleft palate, he is unable to eat well and when he eats, some of the food is stuck in the hole of the cleft palate,” explains Project Medishare. Without treatment, Davenly will continue to deal with poor nutrition.

For $960, Davenly will receive surgery to repair his palate. After his surgery, Davenly will be able to eat and drink without discomfort, and receive the nutrition he needs. Let’s help Davenly live a healthy childhood!

Shee

Shee is a 23-year-old woman from Burma. In 2016, Shee and her family moved to a refugee camp in Thailand. There she has been able to continue her studies. Shee graduated from the junior college and now helps her cousin-in-law weave and sell traditional Karen clothes. She shared that it has been difficult for her family to find work within the camp at this time, but she hopes to become a teacher soon. In her free time, Shee enjoys playing with her nephews. In February, Shee began to develop a mass and experience pain in her abdomen, so she visited the camp's hospital. Upon review, she was diagnosed with a urinary tract infection and given medication. Since the mass continued to grow, Shee was referred to her our medical partner's hospital, Mae Sariang Hospital, in early April. After receiving an ultrasound, the doctors determined Shee has an ovarian cyst and needs to undergo surgery to heal. Currently, Shee experiences severe pain that makes it challenging for her to sleep, eat, or continue her weaving. Fortunately, our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), can help Shee receive treatment. On April 20th, she will undergo surgery to remove the cyst. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to fund the total cost of this procedure. Shee shared, "I am not worried about my operation because I hope it will fix my health problem. I would like to become a teacher in the future because I like teaching. After I recover, I plan to apply at a school in the refugee camp."
