Nay underwent a leg fracture repair.

Compared to before, Nay feels much better and does not feel any more pain. He can move his leg around normally and also can walk by himself. Nay no longer has any of his old symptoms. Now, Nay is able to play with his friends again and he looks very happy.

Nay’s father said, “I am very happy that my son’s leg is better. I still worry since he can’t completely walk properly yet, though. Since we are day laborers and we don’t have much money to treat him, without your support there would be no way for him to receive proper treatment. To go through this daily struggle, always worrying and searching for answers, was very stressful for us. It was painful. In the future, I want him to become an educated person. I want to send my thanks to all of the donors and doctors who helped my son receive care.”

“I am happy that I will be able to walk again,” Nay said. “I want to fully recovery, and when I do, I will continue to go to school and play with my friends again.”

Nay is an eight-year-old boy from Thailand. He lives with his parents and two older sister in in a village in Tak Province. Nay’s mother and his eldest sister work at a sock factory. They receive food and accommodation in addition to a combined monthly income of around 7,000 baht (approx. $234 USD) per month. Nay and his other older sister are students at one of the migrant learning centers in their area, while his father is homemaker.

This morning at around 11:00 am, Nay had finished writing his exam at school and was ready to go home. When he saw the school car that had come to bring the students back to their homes, he and some of the other students became excited about going back home. They rushed into the car before the car had come to a full stop. In the chaos, Nay fell out of the car and cried out that his leg is hurt. His teacher ran to help him up, but Nay told the teacher that he could not stand up and that his right leg was in pain. His teacher then arranged for a car to take him to Mae Tao Clinic (MTC), where upon arrival the medic examined his leg and informed his teacher that Nay had broken his right femur. The medic also told the teacher that he would need to receive surgery at Mae Sot Hospital (MSH) to help his leg heal properly. Currently, Nay is in pain and he cannot move or lift his right leg. He can only lay down and complains that his leg is in pain.

With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Nay will undergo surgery to reset his fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for March 3rd and will cost $1,500. He will be able to move his leg and walk again after surgery. He will also no longer be in pain.
