Dear All,

please distribute this mail to as widely as possible as it might help many children and young adults

On January 1 to January 10, 2011 a team of German Doctors, Dr.Heinz Schoeneich and Interplast, will be Thandwe/Ngapali to do free surgery of
- Cleft lips and cleft palates
- severe injuries from burns
- facial tumors, deformities, and fusions
- other skin tumors, e.g. on the back

The medical treatments/surgeries are organized by my friend Oliver E. (Esser) Soe Thet who lives in Yangon and his team.

Furthermore, Oliver arranges Meningocele operations in Yangon at the Neurological Department of the General Hospital. (Meningocele is a defect in the skull or spinal column forming a cyst filled with fluid which circulates around the brain or spinal cord; most visible kind of meningocele is a big cyst at the base of the nose forming a sort of "elephant nose").

If you have potential patients for the German team or for meningocele surgery please provide Oliver with

Name of the Patient (Male/Female)
Name of Father

Birthday of Patient
Village Name
Township, Area

Contact Number (Phone close by)

Description of Health Defect

Please call Oliver in Yangon at Tel 01 501123 or 09 5138411
You can also send an email to Oliver, in particular if you should have any photos of the patient (you can copy me if you want): Oliver's email address is:

Please don't hesitate to forward this email to Bishops, priests, other men and women congregations, religious communities, Karuna, YMCA, MCC, Christian Churches, Buddhist Monks and Muslim communities. Because of the location of the medical team and transport issues preference is on patients from Rakhine State and Chin State.

I hope you can help many members of your communities..

May God bless you all.
