Zar is a 25-year-old married woman from Burma. She used to work as a nurse aid but now has stopped working.
In September 2017, Zar fell sick and developed a high fever. She was admitted to Thaton Hospital, where she was diagnosed with a ureteral stone. She was only given oral medication and was discharged after a week. A few months later, she developed another fever. After some discussion with her husband, Zar decided to go to Mae Tao Clinic, from where she was referred to Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), our medical partner.
Currently, Zar experiences headache, back pain, dizziness, insomnia, and loss of appetite. She has been diagnosed with a kidney stone. Fortunately, she is scheduled to undergo a removal surgery on September 12. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to fund this procedure.
She says, “When I am fully recovered, I will apply for a new job. I will help my family and will also repay my debt.”
