For the last three months, Koemyeat has suffered from tension in her throat and nasal congestion caused by a deviated septum and a polyp in the right nostril. She is constantly sneezing and her nose is always running. Doctors will reconstruct her nose and septum, removing the nasal polyp and allowing her to breathe normally without any obstructions. Koemyeat has two sons and one daughter, and enjoys tailoring clothes in her free time.

Chit

Chit is a 68-year-old from Burma. He lives with his sister, brother-in-law, niece, his niece's husband and their son. All of his family members are farmers who grow rice for their own consumption and peanuts which they sell. Chit used to work as a cowherd, but stopped when he fell ill one year ago. Sometimes his niece's husband works as a day laborer. They also have two pigs and 10 chickens, which they sell in case they need emergency cash. Their income is just enough to cover their daily expenses and pay for basic health care. Three years ago, Chit start to experience frequent back pain. After hearing about Mae Tao Clinic (MTC), he decided to seek help there. At the clinic he received an ultrasound and a urine test. After reviewing the result, the medic told him there was nothing wrong with his bladder and provided him with medication. However, the medication did not work and his back pain kept returning on and off. In 2019, Chit developed severe pain in his lower left back in addition to difficulty passing urine accompanied by a burning sensation. He went to the nearest clinic where he received a urine test and an ultrasound. After checking his result, the doctor told him that he had a urinary tract infection and inflammation of the bladder. Doctors provided him with antibiotics and gave him an injection. Three week later, when he did not feel better, his niece brought him to Mae Sot Hospital (MSH) in Thailand, where he underwent another ultrasound and urine test. The results indicted that he has a stone in his bladder. The doctor gave him a follow-up appointment for 24th of January 2020 and he received two months' worth of medication in the meantime. When he returned for his appointment, he received an x-ray. Following this, the doctor told him that he needs surgery and a pre-surgical deposit of 15,000 baht (approx. $500 USD) would be required by the hospital. The doctor then scheduled his surgery for March 31st, 2020. Unable to pay for the surgery, Chit and his niece returned to MTC to ask for help. At MTC, Chit received a urinary catheter and a medic referred him to Watsi's Medical Partner Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF) for assistance in accessing further treatment and support. Chit's niece said, “When I was young my uncle looked after me well. So I want to help and support his treatment as much as I can. I am very grateful that he has received this chance to have his treatment supported by you. As we have financial problems at home, I cannot find anyone to borrow money from easily if you would not support him.”
