Children from Burma, who were operated two years ago by
Czech doctors are doing well
Český rozhlas, 24th November 2014
There are three small children living in Burma whose lives were saved
by Czech doctors. They were born with serious hearth defect in a
country, where the quality of health care is below the general level.
Therefore, they underwent surgeries under the Medevac program two
years ago. Two of the three children were found in Yangun by special
rapporteurs of the Czech radio (Český rozhlas).
The doctor is listening to hearth of a little patient and he looks satisfied.
Onlooking mother is smiling shyly. If her son had not undergo the surgery in
the Czech Republic he would not have be living today.
‘He is doing well and he goes to school. He couldn’t do that before the
surgery, as he was exhausted. Bluish. Now he is perfectly fine,’ evaluates the
health state of the little patient doctor Khin Mang Oo.
Both ten-year-old Min and four-year-old Linn Myat Aey were lucky. Two years
ago, Czech doctors chose them in Rangoon. They were transported to the
hospital in Motol for surgery where they were literally born again.
Min, who was almost unable to move before the surgery, is nowadays playing
football and remembers the stay in Prague. He visited many monuments. ‘I
remember some old bridge, ‘he says. But mostly he remembers snow that he
has never seen before and he is not going to see again in Burma.
On the other side Linn was only two years old during her stay in Prague and
she does not remember anything. She attends the kindergarten and she is
also doing fine.
‘The Czech Republic has helped these children to have a normal life. It is
amazing. Nevertheless, there are more little patients who need the help… ,‘
says doctor Khin.
