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.”

Shallon

Shallon is a farmer from Uganda. She completed primary school class six and then had to leave school. Together with her husband, they have 6 children, including a set of twins. They live in a two-roomed mud-built house. Their firstborn child is 14 years old while the last borns are in junior class and aged 5 years. Shallon and her husband work hard to meet all the daily needs of their family. During her free time, she enjoys tending to her family and spending time with her children. Shallon is currently expecting twins. Her doctors recommend that she deliver via a Caesarean section because she has a twin pregnancy, and one of the twins is lying transversely, or sideways. Shallon received a full antenatal package at a local health centre and when she drew closer to the expected day of delivery, she came to Rushoroza Hospital. She was reviewed and surgery was recommended. An attempt to deliver normally could rupture Shallon's uterus. She is not able to meet the cost of surgery and is appealing for help. By delivering her babies via C-section, doctors can ensure the safety of both mother and children. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Shallon undergo a C-Section on August 18th. This procedure will cost $207, and Shallon requests your support. Shallon says, “I pray for a successful surgery. I will resume farming alongside my husband as soon as I get well to be able to continue supporting and taking good care of my family.”
