about Win's recovery.

June 16, 2020

Win is a 46-year-old man from Burma. He lives with his wife and two sons in a village in Karen State. His elder daughter is a health worker where she works at a clinic in a rural village. His two youngest sons are students. Both he and his wife are a subsidence farmers. In his free time, he sometimes helps his community with building bridges or roads as much as he can.

In January 2020, Win began experiencing painful urination and other troubling symptoms. Sometimes he also feels stomach pain in his right side. Watsi donors have helped to fund a CT scan and doctors have now been able to diagnose his kidney stones, which are hard deposits of minerals that form in the kidneys and are often very painful to pass. He has been advised to undergo surgery to remove his kidney stones. If left untreated, Win’s symptoms will continue to worsen and will put him at risk for further health complications in the future.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund Win’s kidney stone removal surgery. The procedure is scheduled to take place on June 17th.

Win said, “I am very excited to receive surgery soon and I cannot wait to recover from my condition.”
