Peace is almost three-years-old and looks up to her two older siblings. Although Peace is young, she is beginning to notice that she is different from her siblings because of the colostomy she received a few months ago. Peace was born with an anorectal malformation, which means she cannot pass stool properly. The colostomy procedure she underwent in a local Kenyan hospital is a temporary solution, but if Peace does not receive surgery soon she could develop a severe infection.

Peace’s parents were barely able to save enough money for her first procedure, but Peace’s father passed away the same month she received her colostomy. Her father was the sole breadwinner in the family and now Peace’s mother is struggling to provide for her three children’s basic needs, let alone the cost of Peace’s surgery and special diet.

For $1,050, Peace will receive an anorectoplasty to correct her intestinal malformation and allow her to pass stool normally. This surgery will let Peace lead a normal life and grow up to be like her older siblings whom she admires so much.

Aye

Aye is a 47-year-old mother, living with her daughter in Thailand. Up until four months ago, Aye worked as a day laborer on a farm. Because she has had to stop working, Aye's daughter left school, and now works as a nanny to help support her mother. Aye's siblings have also stepped up to support their sister. Five years ago, Aye began to experience pain on the left side of her body. She also developed a fever and vomiting, lost her appetite, and found it difficult to sleep. In addition, she experienced night sweats and a stiff neck. Aye was treated by a local health worker, and for a while, she felt better. However, in June 2021, her symptoms worsened, and she went to Mae Tao Clinic (MTC), where she was told to go to the hospital. Due to a lack of funds, Aye could not go to the hospital, and was treated at a local clinic, instead. In April 2022, Aye's symptoms returned, and she went back to Mae Tao Clinic, where she was diagnosed with stones in her left kidney. This time she did go the hospital, where she was told that she would need to have surgery, to remove the stones from her kidney. Thanks to our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Aye is scheduled for surgery to remove the kidney stones on October 3rd, at Mae Sot General Hospital. After she has recovered, Aye should be able to return to her work and to enjoying her life, free from all of her uncomfortable symptoms. Aye and her family need your help to cover the $1,500 needed to pay for her surgery. Aye said: "I am happy that I will be able to receive surgery through donors. Thank you so much for saving my life.”
