April 9, 2018

Ko is a 43-year-old laborer from Burma. He lives alone, working on his employer’s corn farm. In his free time, he enjoys playing football and cane ball.

Ko has experienced abdominal pain for three years. He describes the pain as burning and sharp. He also experiences discomfort after drinking and eating. Often the pain is too great for Ko to sleep or to work.

Doctors want Ko 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 Ko’s CT scan and care, scheduled for April 10.

“When I feel better I will try to change occupation and make Burmese snacks for a living, as I think this will be easier than working in the field,” says Ko.
