Maung is a man fom Burma. Last week, Maung stepped on a hot charcoal and burned the toe on his left foot. He tried to treat himself with help from his neighbor, who cleaned the wound for him. However, his toe never healed.
Maung visited a doctor, who told him that he would have to amputate his toe. The doctor referred him to our medical partner for help in accessing treatment.
Currently, Maung is in a lot of pain. Fortunately, his surgery is scheduled for March 21. Our medical partner is requesting $1,500 to fund this procedure.
He says, “When I recover, I will find work repairing umbrellas and shoes. That is something that I can do very well.”
