Mg Myint Maung Maung, from Pyin Ma Gone Village, Danu Phyu Township, Ayeyarwady Region, is a 15-year-old boy with congenital cleft lips/palate. He is studying at Basic Education Grade (2) but due to his condition, he couldn‘t speak clearly and follow the lessons well. In addition, he experienced serious difficulties in his everyday life such as having meals and drinking water.
Though his parents wanted to let their son undergo re-constructive operation, the financial constraints made it impossible for them to consider the necessary surgical procedures and follow-up treatments. As a family of seasonal agricultural workers, Mg Myint Maung Maung also needs to work along with his parents in harvesting rice and bean.
Once the family learned about KT Care Foundation‘s support for cleft operations they were very excited and keen to gain the KT Care support for the treatment of their son. During the course of his operation, KT Care Foundation supported all the medical and logistic expenditures including foods, medicines, travel, accommodation and other relevant costs for the patient and his attendant as well. The operation was successfully completed by the experienced surgical team at Pin Lon Hospital and Mg Myint Maung Maung’s mother said, “I expected my son to be the same look as others. Now, as his deformity is corrected, I am very delighted and great thanks to the founder and his family of KT Care Foundation and its staff for their invaluable support and donations.”
