Echiwa is 5 years old and has Thalasaemia. This means that he becomes severly anemic and has no energy. He currently receives blood transfusions every 10-14 days to restore his energy. This costs approximately 5000 THB each time he goes to hospital. We would like to have a referral for him to attend a hospital in Bangkok where they may be able to offer him better
treatment. We are unsure of the possible costs involved but as soon as the initial assessment has been completed we will let you know.

Peepay is 3 months old and was born to a young mother. She had no support with breast feeding and struggled so she put the baby on to milk bought from a shop. The only milk available in her budget is the sweetened condensed milk that costs 20b per week. The baby had a very bad allergic reaction to this as no infant should have cows milk under 6 months old. His skin was raw and looked like it was peeling off. We supplied cream for his skin and bought baby powdered milk and showed the mother how to make up the milk correctly. The cost of this milk is roughly 1000 THB per month. If you would like to support this mum please get in touch.
