Veasna is an 11-year-old Cambodian second grader who has a brother and three sisters. According to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, “he likes eating fish and meat and likes to play outside with his friends.”

Veasna has a meningoencephalocele (MEC) on the ridge of his nose, which is a sac of fluid or tissue that protrudes through his skull to create a visible bump. Because of the bump on his face, Veasna feels very shy in public and at school.

If left untreated, the protrusion could lead to various health complications when Veasna is older and it may interfere with his vision, tear ducts, and sinuses.

$390 will fund a surgery to remove the bump on his nose and repair the hole with a bone graft to reconstruct the area. Additionally, these funds will cover post-operation care from a physical therapist and a two week stay at the hospital.

After surgery, Veasna will no longer worry about the bump on his nose and will feel more comfortable at school.

So is a 40-year-old man from Burma. He lives with his family in Myawaddy Township, Karen State. He is a carpenter while his wife is a homemaker. His mother is retired, and his son goes to school. In his free time, So loves to read the newspaper and magazines, as well as going to the pagoda. In mid-2016, So felt lightheaded one day while working. His friend rushed him to the nearest clinic where the doctor completed a physical examination. He was told that his lightheartedness was caused by the hot weather and he was told to drink more water. The following day, So felt lightheaded and developed a headache. He went to the clinic near his house, where he received an injection and oral medication. This time the doctor told him that his symptoms were due to hypertension and told him to come back to the clinic if he did not feel better. So underwent MRI on 14th of September 2019. The result of MRI shows that there is extraaxial mass with rim calcification along right frontal convexity. The doctor told So that he requires surgery to remove the mass. Presently, So still experiences frequent headaches and bouts of dizziness. He cannot sleep well, and he has trouble focusing. So sought treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund. he is now scheduled to undergo mass removal surgery on October 24th. He is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care. So said, "I am ready for surgery. I believe that I will be healthy after that.
