Daw Tin underwent wound debridement for her infection and is healing well.

Before her surgery, Daw Tin’s foot was swollen and discolored. She was in pain and could not farm or do household chores. She could not sleep because she was constantly worrying about her right foot and their financial problems. Our medical partner shared that Daw Tin’s surgery went well and now she is no longer in pain and no longer has a fever. Daw Tin has new confidence that she can earn a better income to help pay for her family’s needs.

“I would have never received this surgery if I would have had to pay for it myself,” she said. “Since the [COVID-19] pandemic, we are not able to save any money because my husband cannot find regular work. We have difficulty just covering our monthly expenses. Thank you so much for your support.”

Daw Tin is a 59-year-old farmer from Burma. She lives with her husband, son and daughter-in-law in Mon State. She and her husband are tenant farmers, but since she hurt her right toe, she cannot work. In her free time, she enjoys growing flowers and vegetables.

Seven years ago, Daw Tin was diagnosed with diabetes but was unable to access regular treatment for her condition. One month ago, she noticed that she had a blood blister on the big toe of her right foot. Her toe was also achy, and she decided that she would prick the blister with a needle to drain it. Over the next couple of days, the drained blister turned into an ulcer. Currently, Daw Tin’s right big toe is swollen and discoloured, and she is in pain. She cannot farm and she cannot help with household chores. At night, she cannot sleep because she is constantly worried about her right foot and their financial problems.

Fortunately, our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is helping Daw Tin receive treatment. On October 28th, surgeons will perform a debridement to help her go back to work and stop her from being in pain. Now, Daw Tin needs help to fund this $694 procedure.

“I want to have my own farm in the future,” said Daw Tin. “Thank you so much to the donors.”
