Mandalay 550-bedded Childrens’ Hospital has invited donors to provide more assistance to three-month-old conjoined twins at the pelvis who are given care at the hospital.
The three-month-old babies born attached at the pelvis are from Nyaungbintha village in Monywa Township.
Although the hospital has provided milk powder and other necessary assistance to them, the twin babies need more assistance from wellwishers as they have to receive further operations, said Dr Thet Swe, medical superintendent of the hospital.
According to sources, they were born at Monywa hospital on 13 January this year, and refered to Mandalay children hospital for further treatment on 16 January.
As their parents who make a living farming in Nyaungbintha village stay here, they are unable to do their own business at the moment, said the medical superintendent, adding that cash donations are needed for a surgery to separate them. According to the hospital, the conjoined twins are in good health under special heath care, and each one defecated separately after receiving a surgery at the hospital.
A wellwisher donated K100, 000 to the conjoined twins who came from a poor family on Wednesday.
