Chantha is a six-year-old student from Cambodia in the first grade. She lives with her parents, who are rice farmers, and her three-year-old brother. When she is not in school, Chantha enjoys playing with her little brother and neighbors.
Since birth, Chantha has had left hip pain and difficulty crawling and walking. As she grew, her parents and doctors noticed her left leg was shorter than her right leg. To correct this, surgeons fixated plate screws to her left leg. Since the screws were placed, she has been able to walk well, and can even run.
Now that her left leg has been corrected, the screws need to be removed to prevent future complications as she grows. Surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help. On November 17th, Chantha will undergo a hardware removal procedure. Now, she and her family need help raising $304 to fund her procedure and care.
Chantha’s mother shared, “I hope my daughter can continue to walk easily and without pain after this procedure.”
