Ma Aye received surgery to remove uterine fibroids.

“Thank you so much, I pray that you have long and healthy lives,” Ma Aye Nwe says when asked if she had a message for the donors who supported her.

Ma Aye Nwe’s doctor tells us, “Although she has been working lightly at the tea shop since her procedure, she anxiously awaits being able to return to her daughter and providing financially,” says Ma Aye Nwe’s doctor.

Before she got sick, Ma Aye worked in a tea shop to support herself and her youngest daughter. Her dream is to save enough money to keep her youngest daughter in school.

However, this will not be possible unless she can go back to work. Four years ago, Ma Aye was diagnosed with myoma, or uterine fibroids. Her condition went untreated due to lack of finances, but for the past few months her symptoms have significantly worsened. Back pain and abdominal pain have prevented her from working, deepening her financial burden. The ensuing pain and depression from her illness are taking an emotional toll as well.

For $625 Ma Aye can have her tumor removed and she can start saving money again.

“After treatment, she will be healthy and will be able to work without any pain,” says our medical partner in Burma. “She looks forward to living a normal life again, and being the best mother she can be.”

Please join us in helping Ma Aye come to a full recovery.

Nay

Nay is a 35-year-old woman from Thailand. She lives with her husband in Mae Pa Village in Tak Province. One and half year ago, they moved from Shwegyin Township, Bago Division in Burma for a better job opportunities. Nay stopped working as a day laborer because her health deteriorated. Now, her husband is the only earner and he is also a day laborer making limited income. Around eight months ago, Nay had a high fever and stomachache. She was also vomited a few times so her employer took her to Mae Tao Clinic (MTC). When she arrived, she received an IV as well as oral medications. She was admitted for one day and then she felt better and returned home. Two days later after she got home, she felt stomachache again in the right side and also vomited. Again, her employer took her back to MTC and she was admitted again. She received oral medications as well as an ultrasound test. After an ultrasound, the medic informed her that she has a stone in her common bile duct as well as in the intrahepatic duct. She was then referred to Watsi Medical Partner Mae Sot Hospital (MSH) for further investigation. At MSH she received another ultrasound as well as a blood test and an X-ray. She was given oral medications to take home and she was asked to return to the hospital once a month for follow up. She went to MSH several times for follow-up appointments and she kept receiving oral medications for her stomachache problem. On February 11th, she went back to MSH as usual and she received another blood test. After that she was told that she has stone in her common bile duct and she needs to be admitted for surgery to remove the stone. Nay has been advised to undergo a cholecystectomy, the surgical removal of the gallbladder. If left untreated, Nay's symptoms will continue to worsen and put her at risk for further health complications in the future. After seeking treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), Nay is scheduled to undergo her cholecystectomy on March 24th. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Nay's procedure and care. Nay said, “I want to work after my surgery so that our family will have enough income and now I am very sad that because of my condition we may have to borrow money from our neighbor.”
