Say is an 18-month-old baby girl from Burma. She lives with her parents, her paternal grandparents, and her uncle. Say likes to play with any toys she can get.

When she was seven months old, Say’s parents noticed that she was experiencing troubling symptoms. After bringing her to multiple clinics, Say was diagnosed with a vaginal tumor. Due to her condition, Say experiences discharge and difficulty passing urine. She also suffers from intermittent fevers.

Say sought treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund. She is now scheduled to undergo mass removal surgery on April 20. She is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care.

“I wish that my daughter will grow up well,” says Say’s mother. “I would be very happy if she could become doctor.”

Babikyengyire

Babikyengyire is the mother of one child who is 7 years old and in first grade at primary school. Her husband died in an accident in 2012. She later managed to buy a piece of land and constructed a three-room semi-permanent house for shelter. A long time ago, in 1989, she thought she was gaining weight with an expanded neck because it was painless. She got married in 2009 and when she got pregnant in 2012, she developed neck pains especially after walking long distances. After delivery, the swelling increased as well as her pain. She is a member of the church choir, but she could no longer sing because it was too painful. Currently, she feels much pain when she wears a mask due to the ongoing COVID-19 regulations in the country. She is hopeful to find a solution from Watsi's Medical Partner Care Center Rushoroza Hospital. At Rushoroza, she presented with long-standing history of bi-nodular neck swelling. Thyrotoxicosis, airway obstruction, difficulty in breathing could be the end result if not treated through a thyroidectomy. Babikyengyire is a businesswoman who carries clothes around town to her customers, though she shared that she is finding it challenging now due to her condition. She feels uncomfortable being in public because of her neck swelling. She seeks financial support for her surgery because her small business can hardly raise a fraction of the total surgery charges. Babikyengyire shared, “I hope for a successful surgery. After the surgery, I believe that I will be able to travel long distances that will help me reach out to more customers and improve my business.”
