SeyHa is a 27-year-old potato farmer from Cambodia. He and his wife live in Kep province with their four-year-old son. His wife is a homemaker and stays home to care for their son. Before his accident, he enjoyed playing football with his friends.
In February 2021, he was on his motorbike when he collided with a car. He lost consciousness and fractured his right femur. He was sent to a government hospital in Phnom Penh - approximately three hours away from Kep- where doctors inserted sign nail hardware to heal his fracture. A sign nail stabilizes a fractured bone and enables bone healing. His bone is now united, and SyHa wants to remove the hardware.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On February 10th, SeyHa will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $304. He still has an aching pain in his right femur due to the sign nail hardware and is hopeful the procedure will help him to walk easily again and return to full activity.
He shared: “I hope the hardware will be removed easily and I can continue to work on my farm to feed my wife and son.”
