Eliud to fix a fracture in his hand.

Eliud had successful surgery and the mother was very appreciative. At least now he will soon be able to use his hand before going back to school in January.

Eliud’s mother said, “I am so grateful and appreciate your support. I am happy and hopeful that my son will be well again. I can continue keeping my hope in him.”

Eliud is a quiet boy aged 15 years from Kimende Kiambu. He is the first born in a family of three. He is in class seven going to class eight next year. Eliud is born of a single mother who is a casual laborer and works at neighbors farms and washing clothes to make ends meet.

On 21st October, Eliud fell from a ladder and sustained closed fracture humerus of the right hand. He was brought to hospital and the surgeon ordered ORIF. The income of the single mother is not sufficient to meet the cost of this treatment. If not treated, it may result in malunion and he would not be able to use his hand.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On October 31st, Eliud will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him use his hand again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.

“Eliud is my first born and my hope. I ask for your support so that he can be treated and be able to support our family,” said Eliud’s mother.

Chan

Chan is a 36-year-old woman who lives with her husband and father-in-law in Shwepyithar Town, Yangon Division. Chan’s husband works as a day labourer on a construction site, while Chan is a seamstress who works from home. In 2010, Chan started to feel tired, had a rapid heartbeat and developed joint pain. She went to the clinic in Thaton, where she lived at that time, and received an an echocardiogram (echo) and x-ray. The doctor also told her that, if her heart became too enlarged, she would not be able to control her condition with oral medication and she would not be able to have a baby. She then received oral medication for a week which made her feel better for a while. In September 2019, when she went back for her follow-up appointment, she received another echo. Following this, the doctor explained to her that her condition could no longer be stabilized with medication. As he knew that Chan could not afford to pay for her surgery, he referred her to Pinlon Hospital. On 17th September 2019, she met the staff at Pin Long Hospital and who then referred her to Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF). Currently, Chan suffers from chest pain, has difficulty breathing, has a rapid heartbeat and has lost weight. In her free times Chan likes to sew, cook and do housework. “When I’m fully recovered, I will continue to work as a seamstress, save money and live happily with family,” said Chan. “Once I have enough money, my husband and I have decided to adopt one child. And I want to do charity work and help poor people as much as I can.”
