Pov is a rice farmer and mother of four from Cambodia. She lives in Kandal province with her husband, their youngest son, and his wife. Pov’s husband and son also work in the rice fields. In her free time, Pov enjoys spending time with her family and cooking for them.
In September, Pov slipped during a monsoon rain and dislocated her right elbow. Since then, she has been treated by a traditional healer in her village, but the dislocation has not been resolved. Currently, she is in pain and cannot flex her elbow joint.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help. On October 23rd, Pov will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $483. This procedure will improve the function in her arm and eliminate pain. Pov contributed $99 to her care.
She shared, “I hope I can move my arm again so I can go back to work and take care of my family.”
