Samorn is a 42-year-old father who lives in Phnom Penh with his wife and two sons. He is a construction worker, while his wife works as a cleaner, and his sons both work as cooks in a hotel. In his free time, Samorn likes to spend time with his sons and fish in the Mekong River.
In 2015, Samorn was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture in his left tibia. He went to a government hospital and the doctors implanted hardware to heal his fracture. Now, the bone is healed, and the hardware is causing discomfort, limiting his mobility, and risks infection.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) can help. On July 26th, Samorn will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $304. This procedure will help him to walk easily again. Samorn is able to contribute to the cost of the surgery and is asking for help to fully fund his care.
He said, “I hope that I can be without pain and I can keep working to support my family.”
