Myint is an eight-year-old Karen boy from Burma. He lives with his parents, sister, and two brothers in No Chaw Lay Village, Kawkareik Township, Karen State, Burma.

Myint was born at home with the help from a traditional birth assistant. He was a healthy child until August 2018, when he complained about a toothache. He developed a swelling in his left cheek, causing Myint to drop out of school because he was not able to concentrate on his studies.

Doctors want Myint to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Myint’s CT scan and care, scheduled for December 14.

He says, “I like to play football with my brother and sister in my free time. I also enjoy playing football with my friends at school. When I grow up, I want to become a teacher in this village.”
