Rotha is a 50-year-old farmer from Cambodia. He is married with three daughters and one son. His wife works in a local clothes factory. In his free time, he helps his wife with housework and enjoys fishing with his friends.
In 2018, Rotha was in a traffic accident and suffered an open fracture of his left tibia and a closed fracture of his left femur. He had surgery at a local hospital, with bone grafts and nails, but his tibia remained infected. After several surgeries and debridements, his infection has resolved, but his bone remains exposed from all the procedures. He cannot walk and is in great pain.
When Rotha learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On November 21st, surgeons at CSC will perform reverse soleus muscle flap of the left tibia to close the open wound and help him walk again without pain. Now, he needs help to fund this $673 procedure.
Rotha shared: “I hope my left leg will finally heal, I will have no infection, and can return home to work for my family again.”

Rotha underwent surgery to cover his exposed leg bone.
Rotha was happy the local health center referred him to Children’s Surgical Centre for specialty surgery. He had successful surgery to repair his wound with a muscle flap. After surgery, he stayed in the hospital for several days while surgeons assessed the successful attachment of the free flap. He is hopeful he will be able to walk again soon and return to his farm. This will allow him to support his family.
Rotha’s wife said: “Rotha is excited that he will soon be able to walk again and will not spend so much time in hospitals. He is more positive about his future and looks forward to doing the activities he enjoys when not working. We are grateful to the staff at the hospital and the donors who gave money so he could have this operation. Thank you!”
