Tha is a 10-year-old girl from Burma. She lives with her parents and two younger brothers. She takes care of her brothers while her parents work as day laborers. She is in second grade.
On November 6, Tha was playing and wrestling with her friends. She lost her footing and fell to the ground. Before hitting the floor, her left arm was twisted backward, and it landed in a bad position. Now, she cannot lift her arm and she is in pain.
With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Tha will undergo surgery to reset her fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for November 9 and will cost $1,500. She will no longer be in pain and will regain use of her arm.
Tha says, “I will continue my studies for the coming year, and I want to be a teacher when I grow up.”
