Maung Chit underwent a fracture repair.

After surgery, Maung Chit’s condition is improving. He can move his leg without pain. Soon, he will undergo another surgery to remove the rod from his leg and allow him to walk normally. He looks forward to the second surgery and is excited to walk again.

Maung Chit says, “If I did not receive surgery, I know that I would not walk and I would not be able to work again. I would like to wish all the donors and people who are helping me through my treatment, may you all be happy and healthy. As you help the needy people like me, I pray that you will receive double blessings in the future.”

Maung Chit is a 43-year-old father of a large family. He lives with his family in a village in Burma. He works very hard as a day laborer, and he is employed by several large farms.

In April, Maung Chit was in an accident. He was transporting timber in a makeshift wagon when a portion of the load fell on top of him, breaking his right leg above the ankle. Maung Chit was immediately brought to a local traditional healer, who cleaned his wound with alcohol. A bamboo paste applied to the wound prevented any infection from developing.

Unfortunately, after two months of care from the traditional healer, Maung Chit had not healed. He began to seek medical assistance elsewhere, eventually traveling four hours to visit our medical partner’s clinic. When he arrived, there was a large bulge on his leg, and he was unable to walk. On December 20, he underwent an internal fixation procedure to repair his fracture. Now, he needs help to fund this $1,500 procedure.

“All I want to do is to get healed so I can return to work,” says Maung Chit.
