Grace safely delivered her baby.

Grace delivered a healthy baby girl! Grace and her husband have named her Winner Because she had a C-section, Grace recovered in the hospital for several days before going home. Now she is back with her family.

“We are very grateful for the help with the costs of this delivery,” says Grace. “Being in the hospital made it possible for me to get family planning help, too, because I want to space my children and limit the size of my family. Please tell all the donors thank you from me.”

Meet Grace, a 19-year-old mother from Uganda. She is currently expecting her second child. Grace and her husband work as small farmers and also sell coffee beans.

As Grace had a high-risk first pregnancy, doctors at our medical partner’s hospital, Bwindi Community Hospital, will closely monitor Grace throughout her pregnancy. She may also require a C-section to safely deliver her baby.

Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, has arranged for Grace to receive prenatal vitamins and regular checkups, starting on June 24. Grace and her husband have contributed $7 towards her medical care but need our help to fund the remaining $241.

“I thank the donors so much for their support,” says Grace.

Aung Soe

Aung Soe is a 49-year-old man who lives with his daughter and son in Tak Province. His daughter sells vegetables from their home while Aung Soe and his son are agricultural day laborers. In the beginning of 2022, he notice a small mass around his left eye lid. At first, he thought that mass would disappear over time, but the mass instead increased in size. Although he wanted to go to a hospital, he could not afford to pay for transportation nor any treatment. In May, Aung So noticed that he had developed a mass in his right eye lid area as well and that his vision had become blurred. He borrowed money from his neighbor and went to Mae Tao Clinic (MTC) on May 31st. At the clinic, the medic checked his eyes and told him that he would need to go to Mae Sot hospital (MSH). The next day, he went to MSH, where he was told that he would need a CT scan. Currently, his vision is becoming increasingly blurred and he cannot see clearly when he reads. Doctors want Aung Soe to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Aung Soe's CT scan and care, scheduled for June 10th. Aung Soe said “I am worried that they will not be able to treat the mass. Now, I feel very sad. I can’t help my family with household chores. I would like to recover quickly so that I can go back to work."
