Sha is an 11-year-old boy from Thailand. He lives with his two sisters and his father in Mae Sot, Tak Province. Sha and one of his sisters are students, while the other sister works in a factory. His father works as a construction worker. Unfortunately, their mother recently passed away. Sha likes fishing and playing football with his friends.
Since April 2017, Sha has had an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him pain, and he sometimes misses his classes. Fortunately, on February 5, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at Mae Sot General Hospital, our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund Sha’s hernia repair surgery. The procedure is scheduled to take place on February 5 and, once completed, will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
