A widow named Daw works long hours in a clothing factory in Myanmar to support her daughter Win. Suddenly something terrible happened: Win became ill with Dengue fever, and doctors wouldnâ€™t treat her without advance paymentâ€”a death sentence! ...
- [Narrator] Da, is a widow.
To provide for her daughter,she works long hours
at this clothing factory in Myanmar.
They were getting byon her meager earnings
until her daughter Win got sick
with a high fever.
- I gave her medicine tokeep her temperature down,
but then I came home andfound her unconscious
on the bed.
- [Narrator] Da took Win to the hospital
where a test revealed she'd contracted
Dengue Fever, but the doctor said
without further payment in advance,
they would not treat her.
Da quickly went tofamily and even neighbors
to borrow money.
- They refused to help.
They were waiting for me to bring home
my daughter's dead body.
- [Narrator] Da finally wasable to borrow the money,
but at 20 percent interest per month.
Win recovered after 28days in the hospital,
but then Da had to facetheir growing debt.
- Every day, we ate onlyone egg and little rice.
I could only afford topay the monthly interest
on my debt.
Working with the localpastor, CBN's Orphan's Promise
paid off the family's remaining debt
and gave them a new sewing machine,
so Win can learn to sew and Da can earn
extra income from home.
Da and Win now attend church together
and both recently prayedto become Christians.
- I used to dread wakingup in the morning,
because I was so anxious about money.
Now everything has changed.
I'm so grateful to Orphan's Promise.
