“Naw Moe is a very shy yet witty thirteen-year-old girl,” says our medical partner, Burma Border Projects (BBP). Naw Moe lives in Burma with her parents and one of her four older siblings.

“Naw Moe’s parents both work as farmers, planting and cultivating a variety of plants and then selling the partially grown plants,” says BBP.

When Naw Moe was nine-years-old, “she began to experience numbness and pain in her left side, knee aches, loss of appetite, sleeplessness, and difficulty urinating,” BBP tells us. Naw Moe was subsequently diagnosed with kidney stones.

Because of her condition, “Naw Moe currently does not go to school,” and “no longer wishes to go out to play with her friends, but stay home and keep to herself,” BBP continues.

Surgery to remove the kidney stones will cost $1500, and is expected to eliminate all symptoms. Treatment “will allow her to live a normal live and she can return to her normal happy self,” says BBP.

Naw Moe and her family are hopeful for the treatment outcome. “Her mother hopes her to be happy and healthy. She hopes her daughter will be able to go back to the days when Naw Moe would be able to cook for her mom when she was too busy to, and back on track to achieving her dreams,” BBP says.

“Naw Moe cheerfully tells us her aspirations are to become a nun and teach ninth and tenth grades in Burma for the rest of her life.”
