Sinuon is a 39-year-old woman from Cambodia. Together, she and her husband have a four-year-old son. Her husband is a day laborer, while Sinuon and her son collect aluminum cans and bottles to recycle for additional income.
In March 2020, Sinuon was involved in a motor vehicle accident and fractured her left tibia. She went to a government hospital, where her bone was stabilized with metal hardware. Now that her fracture has healed completely, Sinuon wants to have the hardware removed from her leg to avoid potential health problems in the future and improve her comfort and mobility.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On May 4th, Sinuon will undergo a hardware removal procedure at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre. Sinuon needs help to fund this $304 procedure.
Sinuon said: “After surgery, I hope that I can walk well to collect cans with no aching in my leg.”
