Smile Stories

When we think of children we usually envision happy, active kids running around without a care in the world. However for children with congenital heart disease they are often sickly and a bit of activity could tire them out. Some live sedentary lives not because they want to but because they need to. Many of them have uncertain futures and live each day at a time.

When we have the chance to help improve these children’s lives, every single smile we receive is priceless. Here are their stories and how Nu Skin distributors have helped create smiles.

Name   :   Hein Moe Moe Win
Age      :   6 years old

Moe Moe got very sick when she was three months old and was brought to the doctor. That’s when she was diagnosed with congenital heart disease (hole in the heart). Since then, she had to constantly rely on medication to manage her medical condition. She gets breathless and exhausted from walking too long and was unable to play like other children do. She was also smaller in size as compared to children of the same age.

Her father, Mr. Tin Win who works as a farmer for a living and also the sole breadwinner for the family, draws no more than SGD150 per month. With his meager income, he has to support Moe Moe’s taxing medical bills without any financial support. Through Nu Skin’s support from the SEACHF, Moe Moe was able to have a second chance in life. Her successful surgery in Singapore transformed her life and like any other healthy children, she now looks forward to attending school and receive education to pursue her dream to be a doctor.
