U Aung is a 42-year-old father and husband from Burma. He lives with his wife and three children.
Starting in 2016, U Aung has experienced worsening pain in both his hips. Although he received surgery on one of his hips, he still needs to undergo surgery on his other hip.
Fortunately, U Aung learned about our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF). At BCMF’s care center, surgeons can perform a total hip replacement to relieve U Aung of his pain and allow him to walk easily. Treatment is scheduled for April 5, and U Aung needs help raising $1,500 to pay for this procedure.
“Since I received the first surgery I feel like I have won the lottery,” said U Aung. “Once I receive this surgery, I would like to have my own shop selling vegetables and raise pigs to help support my family.”
