Thank You to the Ngapali Beach guests of Laguna Lodge – ECO Hotel,- as their ECO Fund 2,5 Euro a stay will fund as next project that young Shan Lady Ma San Htit – 9 years old and at 2nd grade, living near Tachilake the ” Golden Triangle ” will get a new left leg – a prosthesis at the Yangon Orthopedic Hospital.
Ma San Htit was born with a multiple handicapped at toes, fingers and with a missing left foot. Since birth her family need to carry her all over a bit she can crawl on the left knee which had hardened the left knee skin already as it was used as a shoe. Here in Tachilake her right hand & fingers were operated to ensure that she gets a good grip, be able to write in school and hold things as normal.
2010 MCA/WCWB started such special medical projects with the support of LOG, Aviation Without Borders Germany ( an aid arm of FRAPORT – Frankfurt Airport ) and Otto Bock global leader in prosthesis. Than 12 years old Cyclone Nargis survivor Mg San Htay from Labutta which we noticed with his used PVC drain pipe below his knee only made him walking ,- got the great chance through Mr Frank Franke, President of LOG Germany to have all prosthesis done state of the art in Germany in Gottingen sponsored by Otto Bock. Just in 2016 a second time Mg San Htay was able to go to Germany as he grew much taller and needed urgent a new larger prosthesis. In 2009 Mg San Htay which also had several miss building s at his hands got also operated first by Dr Heinz Schoeneich at a Thandwe Hospital charity mission arranged and funded by Laguna Lodge – ECO Hotel, Ngapali Beach Front.

In May 2017 he could be sent to Yangon orthopedic Hospital with his mother – travel and all food charges as well covered for several weeks to get a new leg first time in live and stay there for several week training walking, running , play football and how to maintain the prosthesis. Now long back in Ngapali as in June 17 the school started again – Mg Soe Myint always at the sideline when his friends played – now Mg Soe Myint is part of the team with some new Adidas shoes donated by LOG Germany he also plays Football every day now. In some years when he as well grows up we will arrange a second & lager prosthesis to be included always for the rest of his live.
