Kyaw Myat is a five-year-old boy from Burma. He lives with his family in a village in Sagaing Division. Kyaw Myat’s father is a subsistence farmer and sometimes he also works as a day laborer on other villagers’ farms. His mother is a homemaker and takes care of Kyaw Myat’s brother at home.

When he was two, Kyaw Myat started to walk. But the following year, his limbs became weak and he could no longer walk properly. Kyaw Myat’s head had also gradually increased in size and he could not control his urine. He was diagnosed with hydrocephalus and received treatment for it. However, he was also diagnosed with an abnormal growth in his head. The mass is putting pressure on an artery in his head, which makes affects his ability to walk properly. Currently, Kyaw Myat cannot walk properly and sometimes, he complains that he has a headache and watery eyes.

Kyaw Myat sought treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund. He is now scheduled to undergo mass removal surgery on August 23rd. He is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.

Kyaw Myat’s father said, “I almost give up on my son’s treatment because he has a lot of medical problems. However, when I discussed his treatment with my wife, we know that we couldn’t give up on him.”
