Thim, who is 46 years old, has two adult sons, and two school-age daughters. He lives in Kampong Speu province in Cambodia and enjoys fishing and growing vegetables.
In April 2023, Thim was driving his motorbike at night when he had an accident and fell over. He went home, but over the next few days, he began to experience swelling in his upper arm, pain, and loss of function in his arm. Thim visited a local village healer, who applied a cast. However, Thim’s injury has not improved and he has been unable to work.
Thim sought help from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, and was diagnosed with the dislocation of his shoulder and median nerve palsy. He is now scheduled to undergo a reduction procedure on May 11th at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre, after which he should regain the mobility in his arm. Thim needs your help to raise $485 to cover the cost of his surgery.
After surgery, Thim hopes that his pain will be gone and that the function in his hand, arm, and shoulder will improve.
