Ner is a 56-year-old man from Burma. He is a subsistence farmer, and he likes to listen religious sermons in his free time.

Ner has had a hernia for five years. Fortunately, on June 28, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at Mae Sot General Hospital, our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund Ner’s hernia repair surgery. The procedure is scheduled to take place on June 28 and, once completed, will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.

Ner said, “When I am completely healed, I will work on my farm again. I will continue to go to the temple and do some merit activities.”
