Chiva is a 23-year-old server at a karaoke restaurant. He lives with his parents and younger sister in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. His parents work long days, six days per week in construction, and his sister is still in high school. Chiva helps support his family by working in a nearby karaoke restaurant. In his free time, he enjoys playing soccer and volleyball.
In September 2022, Chiva was in a motorbike accident that caused a fracture in his right leg. It is difficult for him to walk, and he has a chronic infection in his wound. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help. On July 26th, Chiva will undergo a fracture repair procedure to help him walk easily again. CSC is requesting $483 to fund this surgery.
Chiva said, “I hope I can walk like before the accident and go back to work full-time.”
