Yan Myo Aung

Story written by Kristopher Hall

It is easy to forget sometimes the different worlds that exist within the one we take for granted. There is a world where a boy was born with a cleft lip and the traditions and beliefs of his family made them believe they were to blame because they were fishermen and hooked the lips of fish. There is a world in which this boy is called a broken egg and other children will not play with him. There is a world in which this boy’s parents are afraid to get him help because they fear they will not be able to find the money or care for him after he receives surgery. There is a world in which this boy cries to his mother at night for 12 years. It is easy to forget when it is not you or your child. Yan Myo Aung and his parents are grateful that Operation Smile and the people who give their support have not forgotten. Yan says he will not forget the new chance that he has been given, and he dreams of growing up to be a doctor who will not forget to help others.
