Naw underwent musculoskeletal surgery.

Before surgery, Naw was wholly dependent on others when completing most tasks that involved movement. After two surgeries and physical therapy, she is now able to lift both of her legs, stand up on her feet, and move her leg slowly. Naw looks happy and smiles frequently.

Naw is a 14-year-old girl from Burma with cerebral palsy. She lives at the Bible School. Naw is able to sit independently and is able to use her left upper limb for functional tasks, but she has some impairment in her right upper limb. To move around her environment, she must be lifted. She is also dependent for all self-care tasks.

To help with her mobility, Naw was referred to our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), through Stepping Stones, a physiotherapy support service. She needs Achilles tendon lengthening surgery. This procedure will help alleviate the tightening in her calves, giving her more independent movement.

On May 4, Naw will undergo surgery at Mawlamyine Christian Leprosy Hospital, BCMF’s care center. BCMF is asking for $1,500 to cover the cost of her surgery.

After treatment, Naw will be able to move around more easily!
