失去雙親的緬甸女孩Naf重拾微笑

更新日期:6月 1


娜夫是一名來自緬甸的小女孩。當我們第一次遇見娜夫時,兩歲多的她穿著粉紅色的外套,好奇地看著我們手上的玩具,當我們把玩具交到她手上時,她綻放出燦爛的笑容,大家都被她純真無邪的笑容感染。

我們從娜夫的外婆口中得知,娜夫是由外婆外公撫養的,由於家貧,娜夫母親當年只能在家中分娩,誕下娜夫十五天後就不幸地去世。當娜夫的父親知道他的女兒患有唇顎裂時,他無法接受,拋棄了當時還不足一個月大的娜夫,至今一次也沒有回來探望自己的親生女兒。

外婆回想起第一次看見娜夫的時候,她又震驚又傷心:「我在村裡從來沒見過這樣的小孩,抱著她時我的手在顫抖。」儘管如此,外婆沒有放棄,堅持要把娜夫撫養成人,因為不管娜夫的樣子如何和有否缺憾,她仍然是血脈相連的親孫女。

慶幸娜夫一家從佤邦婦女協會慈善基金會的幫助下,得知微笑行動能提供免費的唇顎裂修復手術,於是外婆帶著娜夫從緬甸坐車,跨越邊境,花了一天攀山涉水去到中國瀾滄。路途雖然遙遠,但無減他們對手術的期待。

娜夫一家除了外婆,還有外公和一個七歲的哥哥,僅以外公微薄的收入渡日。生活雖苦,但他們總是帶著笑容。當病房裡其他小孩都在哭鬧的時候,娜夫總是乖乖地坐在病床上等候,懂事得令人非常欣慰。

外婆抱著娜夫來到手術室前,把娜夫交給醫生。外婆既擔憂又期待,因為她知道這次手術過後,娜夫終於不用再承受歧視的目光,未來她可以活得更開心、更有自信。

雖然娜夫的出身不幸,母親早逝,父親也離她而去,但能得到手術機會修復缺陷,迎來了人生新的一章。娜夫的人生終於會有一個新的開始,以全新的面貌迎接未來。

微笑行動相信每一個患有唇顎裂的兒童都應該得到手術的機會,請捐款支持我們的工作:https://donorbox.org/general-donations-64


Naf is a two-year-old girl from Myanmar, when we first met her. She was wearing her pink coat and looking at the toys in our hands. As soon as we handed the toys to her, her face lit up with a contagious smile, spreading happiness to the people around her.

We found out that Naf was raised by her grandparents, from our conversation with her grandmother. Due to her family’s financial circumstances, Naf’s mother could only give birth at home. Unfortunately, two weeks after giving birth to Naf, her mother passed away. When Naf’s father discovered that his daughter was born with cleft lip and cleft palate, he couldn’t accept it and left her, and never came back.

Recalling the first time Naf’s grandmother saw the new born girl, she was shocked. “I had never seen a child with cleft lip and cleft palate in my village. My hands were shaking when I was holding her.” Naf’s grandmother was worried and uncertain about Naf’s future. She did not give up on Naf despite her appearance.

Fortunately, Naf’s family received help from the Wa State Womens Association Charitable Foundation, and found out that Operation Smile provides free surgeries to children with cleft lip and cleft palate. Naf’s grandmother carried Naf from Myanmar to Lancang Lahu in China.

We came to understand that Naf’s grandfather is the only source of income for the family, supporting Naf, her grandmother and her 7-year-old brother. Regardless of the challenges that they’re facing, they always carry big smiles on their faces. Naf was sitting quietly on her bed, waiting for her surgery while the other children were crying and throwing tantrums.

On their way to the operation room, Naf’s grandmother believed that as soon as the surgery was over, Naf would no longer have to suffer from discrimination and will have a better life.

Although Naf lost her mother at an early age and her father left her soon after, her life took a turn for the better after the surgery. Finally, Naf can now start her new life with a smile.

Operation Smile strives to help every child with cleft conditions, bringing more smiles to the world.
