Naw Khu is a 25-year-old woman from Burma. She lives with her parents and two brothers in a village. Naw Khu is a homemaker, while the rest of her family works as farmers growing beans and nuts on their land. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and the Burmese military takeover, Naw Khu’s family has had difficulty selling their crops.
In early September 2021, Naw Khu started to experience edema in her whole body, and especially in her face, legs, and hands. Her abdomen has also become enlarged and she has experienced a loss of appetite. She has had abnormal bleeding and feels tired when walking long distances. At night, she often has a fever and has difficulty sleeping.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), is helping Naw Khu receive treatment. On December 9th, she will undergo a CT scan, or 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 her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan. Now, Naw Khu needs help raising $414 to cover the cost of Naw Khu’s CT scan and care.
Naw Khu shared, “sometimes I want to give up, but I feel bad for my mother. She tries very hard to help me. She spends all her time with me. I feel sorry for her.”

Naw Khu underwent a CT scan to diagnose and help heal her condition.
Naw Khu received a CT scan in order to help doctors diagnose her condition and create a proper treatment plan. According to the CT scan results, Naw Khu has a number of ovarian cysts, but she was relieved when the doctors shared that they are still small enough that she does not need surgery. A midwife gave her medication that will help decrease the size of the cysts, in turn minimizing her chances of needing surgery. Naw Khu and her mother were extremely happy and are optimistic about the future.
Naw Khu’s mother said, “I am so happy that I can’t express with any word. I thank God for helping my daughter. In the past, I could not sleep and cried every night seeing my daughter suffered from poor health. I have no money to give for my daughter’s treatment cost. I am so appreciative for your help. I will always remember you in my prayers. God bless all of the donors and the Burma Children Medical Fund staff who helped my daughter and may God fulfill all your needs.”
