Samnang is a high school student. He has six brothers and two sisters and is the youngest child in his family. Both of his parents are farmers. He enjoys reading, listening to music, and spending time with friends.
Samnang was in a motor vehicle accident in October 2019 and fractured his left tibia. Doctors at a government hospital fixated hardware to the fracture. Now the bone is healed and the hardware needs to be removed in order for him to walk again with no pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On April 25th, Samnang will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $304. This procedure will allow him to walk easily again and will prevent future complications.
Samnang says, “I hope I recover well and am free of pain so I can return to school.”

Samnang underwent fracture hardware surgery following a motor vehicle accident.
Samnang took a neighbor’s advice and traveled two and a half hours for his procedure by orthopedic surgeons who removed the hardware from his left tibia. It was uncomfortable for him, and he is relieved the hardware is gone. He rested in the hospital for several days and spent time with the physiotherapist who gave him exercises to regain strength in his leg. He is happy to be home and will return to school. His dream is to become an engineer.
Samnang’s mother said: “I’m so happy to see my son doing better. We are glad his leg has healed, and it was time to take out the metal pins. He doesn’t want to go to a hospital again, he wants to be with his friends at school and study hard. We are lucky to have generous donors and quality health care for Cambodians who cannot afford this care.”
