October 8, 2019

Soe is a 48-year-old man from Burma. Soe lives with his wife, a son and four daughters in Mon State. His wife used to work but now stays home to look after their youngest daughter, who is just six months old now, and their son, who is suffering from a severe type of congenital heart disease. Soe’s eldest daughter also stays home and helps her mother with household chores. Soe’s two other daughters are students. Soe Myint has another daughter and she works as a domestic worker in Yangon.

Last two years ago, Soe experienced persistent twitches in his left lower eyelid. About 15 days later, he noticed that the vision in his left eye had deteriorated to the point that he could hardly see things. He then went to a clinic, but he just received oral medication and eye drops. However, the treatment he received at the clinic had no effect on his condition. He also had slight pain in his left eye. In 2018, when Soe was traveling on a motorcycle, he passed out and fell off from the motorcycle. People nearby saw him and took him to the local hospital. He regained consciousness when he arrived at the hospital. Not long after the incident, Soe noticed that the vision in his right eye has also started to become blurry. He then went to an eye clinic in Yangon where the doctor examined his eyes. There he was provided with oral medication and eye drops. However, Soe did not feel any better even with the medication.

Doctors want 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 Soe’s CT scan and care, scheduled for October 08.

Soe said, “I am worried for my son and I want to him get better soon. I am also worried for my daughters who are left behind at home because they don’t have any money to buy food.”

Emmanuel

Emmanuel is a young boy from Tanzania. He is the only child to his mother and they receive little support from his father, making their daily needs hard to meet. Emmanuel's mother noted his legs bulging outwards and got worried. Efforts to seek health care were hard since she had no income and Emmanuel's father ignored the concern. His mother saved some income and took him to the hospital where he was advised on calcium diet to strengthen the bones and return to the hospital after three months. He did not improve, rather his walking became difficult. Emmanual was seen by an employee from our hospital and referred them to our facility. He was diagnosed with genu varus, a condition that limits a child's ability to walk. He had surgery recommended to correct the condition. Once treated, Emmanuel will be able to walk with ease. His mother sells vegetables to earn a living. she is worried that her son's surgery might not be possible due to limited income. She hopes that with kind support, he will be able to walk. She appeals for financial assistance. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $940 to fund corrective surgery for Emmanuel. The procedure is scheduled to take place on October 18th. Treatment will hopefully restore Emmanuel's mobility, allow him to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease his risk of future complications. Emmanuel’s mother says, “I am only concerned about our Emmanuel’s legs as I am unable to afford the treatment cost and his father is not supportive, please help him get his legs corrected.”
