December 19, 2016

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.
