Iman received casts for both of his wrists to help repair fractures after a recent fall.

We’re happy to report that Iman is well on his way to recovery and is able to carry out daily activities and go to school again!

“We would have needed to take a loan for his treatment if there was no funding for Iman,” says his father. “We are very happy to receive this care. I want to thank the donors for helping.”

Meet Iman, an 11-year-old sixth grader from Nepal! “Iman stays with his parents, grandmother, three brothers and a sister. They own a small piece of land where they grow cereals and pulses during the farming seasons,” writes our medical partner, Possible. Iman likes to play football with his friends during breaks at school, and enjoys “English language classes the most because he can hear new stories.”

Iman recently tripped and fell on his outstretched arms, fracturing both of his wrists and leaving him swollen and in pain. Possible shares, “due to pain he cannot move his hands properly. Since both of his hands are now affected, he has to depend upon others even for simple tasks. He cannot go to school either.”

For only $205, Iman can get two casts to allow his forearms to heal from the fractures. This treatment will relieve Iman of his pain, allowing him to perform daily activities on his own and return to school. His doctors add, “there will be no deformities and he will be able to lead a normal active life in the future.” Let’s help Iman heal so he can back to learning and playing!

Linn

Linn is a 24-year-old seventh grader from Burma. She lives with her parents, grandmother, an uncle and three younger sisters in Myawaddy Township, Karen State. Among her family, only her father and her mother work. Her uncle stays home and looks after her grandmother and her youngest sister, while her two other sisters go to school. To support their family, Linn’s parents work as day labourers. About six months ago, while she was studying at school, Linn started to experience dizziness and severe headaches. When she looked at the blackboard and her notebook, she had blurry double vision. However, she did not say anything to the teacher as she is new at the school and she was afraid of the teacher. When her friends found out what was happening to her, they wanted to tell the teacher, but Linn forbid them from doing so. After a month of struggling with this problem, Linn finally told her mother. She had kept it from her as she knew about their financial difficulties and she did not want to become a burden. Linn's parents took her to an eyeglass shop in Myawaddy. There, they examine her eyesight, told Linn that she does not need eyeglasses and urged her to go to Mae Sot Hospital (MSH) in Thailand. Doctors want Linn 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 her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Linn's CT scan and care, scheduled for September 2nd. As for Linn, she enjoys studying a lot. She said, “English and mathematics are my favorite subjects. I’m also interested in karate as self-defense course and I want to learn it. But, when I have time, I have to help out with household chores. I also have to set aside time to studying.”
