Julian received prenatal care, delivery in a facility with skilled attendants, and a postnatal check-up.

After a safe birth with no complications, Julian and her new baby are doing well. Or maybe just a little sleepy, judging by the photo!

“I am glad I was attended to by a skilled person and there were no complications,” Julian said. “I’m looking forward to joining a parents’ meeting group so that I can learn about health issues that will be of great benefit to me and my child.”

Julian is a 17-year-old girl living in Kenya. Julian’s father passed away when she was a child and has been raised by her mother. Her mother is a small-scale farmer who grows maize, beans, potatoes, and cassavas to support her family.

Julian is pregnant and though she is young, is excited to be a mother. Julian says: “I am thrilled for the opportunity to know simple things about my pregnancy, such as the position of the baby, warning signs to be on the lookout for, and easy ways to prepare for the baby’s arrival. I pray that my baby is delivered in the hospital safely.” Unfortunately, Julian has been having very bad backaches that are making it hard to walk, and needs to deliver under the supervision of a doctor to ensure her and her baby’s safety.

For $215, we can help Julian have the opportunity to have her baby delivered safely at a health facility and will receive rapid access to advanced care in case of complications. Let’s help Julian and her baby have a safe pregnancy and delivery!

Kyaw

Kyaw is a seven-year-old boy who lives with his mother and two older brothers in a refugee camp in Tak Province, Thailand. Kyaw is a student in grade two but unfortunately, due to the outbreak of Covid-19 in camp, all schools in the camp have been closed since July 1st. His oldest brother is unemployed and his mother is homemaker. Kyaw’s family receives 1,240 baht (approx. 41.30 USD) per month which is just enough for their monthly expenses. Kyaw’s mother also grows vegetables in a small garden just for themselves. In his free time, Kyaw like to watches movies and play with his friends. Kyaw also like to watch and listen to fairy tales before he falls asleep. At noon on October 24th, Kyaw climbed a tamarind tree to collect its fruits, carrying a bag with his favorite toy inside. He hung the bag on a tree branch, but his toy fell out when he accidentally bumped into his bag with his shoulder. While climbing down to retrieve his toy, his foot slipped, and he fell out of the tree onto his right arm. He immediately experienced severe pain in his right wrist and saw that it looked deformed. The next day, International Rescue Committee (IRC) referred Kyaw and his mother to nearby Mae Sot Hospital. There Kyaw received an x-ray and a doctor told Kyaw and his mother that Kyaw’s right wrist was fractured and that he would need to undergo surgery for it to heal properly. Currently, Kyaw is experiencing severe pain in his right hand, and his right wrist is swollen and looks deformed. He cannot grab anything with his right hand, and he cannot raise his arm above his head. With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Kyaw will undergo surgery to reset his fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for October 27th and will cost $1,500. This treatment will help Kyaw be able to use his hand again and he will no longer be in pain after surgery. Kyaw said, “I am so happy to receive support from the organization and I am thankful to the donors who will support me. I am so happy to have a chance to undergo surgery to repair my wrist. I want my hand to heal and be like before so that I can grab anything I want to.”
