Saean is a 28-year-old delivery driver working in the capital city of Phnom Penh. He is married and has a three-year-old daughter. His wife is a garment worker. He likes to play tennis and football, read, listen to music, and fish.
Saean was in a traffic accident in April and injured his right forearm. After the accident, he went to a hospital for an x-ray but decided to get treatment by a Khmer traditional healer instead.
His condition did not improve and his neighbor told him to try visiting our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). There, he was diagnosed with a right radius fracture with ulnar styloid, swelling, and pain. CSC put a cast on his arm for 4 weeks and his pain has decreased, but now it is time for screw fixation to fully heal his right radius fraction.
Fortunately, surgeons at Children’s Surgical Centre can help. On June 7th, Saean will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $483. This procedure allow him to move his arm easily again and finally heal from the accident.
Saean says, “I’m hoping my right forearm fracture is fixed so I can work again without pain.”

Saean underwent a fracture repair procedure so he can use his right arm.
Saean traveled two hours to Children’s Surgical Centre where doctors repaired his fractured radius that has caused him so much pain. He rested in the hospital for several days. The physiotherapy team gave him exercises to increase the muscle strength and flexibility of his arm. Surgeons will watch him carefully for signs of nerve damage. Although it may take up to two months for his to heal completely, he is so pleased with his care and hopes he can use his arm soon to drive a vehicle again. This will improve his life because he needs to work to support his wife and child, and has not been able to drive since his accident.
Saean said, “It has been difficult to have no work for the past two months, and I am grateful to the surgeons who worked so hard to fix my arm so I can use it again. My family is really thrilled that I am improving, and I want to thank the people who paid for my surgery so I can get stronger and take care of my family.”
