Unita's treatment was fully funded on February 17, 2013.

Unita is a radiant woman who lives in a rural area of Kenya. She and her husband grow their own food on a small plot of land, and pick up odd jobs or day labor at neighboring farms to earn the rest of the money they need to survive.

Unita is pregnant, and she wants a safe delivery for her baby. She first came across Lwala Community Alliance by participating in training programs that taught her how to treat water before drinking it, prepare locally grown foods, and save small amounts of money each week in case of medical or emergency need. Now, Unita is hoping to become a part of Lwala’s maternal health program.

Like every mother, Unita wants to give birth in a clean, safe, place, and have access to pre and post-natal services to make sure she and her baby are healthy. For $205, Lwala Community Alliance can provide Unita with pre-natal care, community health worker visits, a safe delivery at their hospital, and a post-natal checkup for her and her baby.

Nyi

Nyi is 18-year-old agricultural day laborer from Thailand. He has lived with his grandparents in a village close to the border of Burma since he was 10 years old. His grandfather is a carpenter and earns 2,000 baht (approx. $66.7 USD) per month. His grandmother works as a daily laborer too and also earns 2,000 baht (approx. $66.7) in a month. Nyi had to stop working in March when he felt unwell. Previously, in his free time, he liked to play cane ball. On the evening of December 2nd 2019, Nyi and his brother went out together and they ended up in the hospital with a endotracheal tube for three days due to alcohol poisoning. One week after he was discharged, Nyi went back to work. About a month later, he developed shortness of breath and fatigue. By the time he went to Mae Sot Hospital in March 2020, the doctor diagnosed him with tracheal stenosis, a narrowing of the wind pipe. He then received a tracheostomy. The doctor referred him to Chiang Mai for further treatment, but Nyi was unable to go to Chiang Mai until September due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Doctors want Nyi 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 $469 to cover the cost of Nyi's CT scan and care, scheduled for October 2nd. "Since I was told that spraying pesticides without protective gear is unsafe [a task he used to do all the time as an agricultural day laborer], I want to find some other type of work such as in construction once I recover," said Nyi.
