Dina is a 20-year-old man from Kampong Thom province in Cambodia. He works at a bank and enjoys playing football with his friends in his free time. He has two younger brothers, who are still in school, and his parents are hardworking rice farmers.
A month ago, Dina was riding his motorbike when he was hit by a tractor and fractured his left tibia and damaged his left foot. Due to financial constraints, he could not afford treatment at a hospital and visited a healer for a bamboo splint. However, he has not received treatment for his foot injuries, and the wound has become infected. DIna is experiencing severe pain and swelling and cannot walk or work.
When Dina learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 6th, surgeons at CSC will perform a debridement procedure to remove damaged and infected tissue from the wound so his foot can finally heal. CSC is requesting $324 to fund this procedure.
Dina said, “After surgery, I hope my foot will heal, and the fracture will also heal so I can return to work.”
