Manith underwent foot surgery so he can live comfortably and confidently.
Manith was able to have surgery to separate the joints in in his foot and separate his toes. He rested at the hospital for several days and was cautioned to not bear weight on his right leg for several weeks as his incision heals. The physiotherapy team worked with him to slowly increase weight bearing, and he will be able to resume his normal activities within a few months. His life will change as he will be able to wear shoes comfortably and his mother is happy that he won’t grow up feeling ashamed of how his feet look.
Manith’s mother said, “I was worried about Manith’s feet, but now I have hope he will have normal feet like other children and they won’t make fun of him. I am so happy the doctors could fix his toes, and I want to thank the donors who support CSC so he could have this surgery.”

Manith is a playful and creative 7-year-old student from Cambodia. He lives with his parents and is the only child in his family. His mother works as a garment worker, and his father works as a taxi driver for a private company. Some of Manith’s favorite activities include painting, playing with toys, watching cartoons, and playing with his friends. At home, he loves to eat soup and yogurts!
Manith was born with a condition that caused two of his toes on his right foot to be fused together. Although he can walk, run, and play with ease, it is difficult for him to wear shoes.
Fortunately, Manith is scheduled to undergo surgery to heal his condition on August 2nd at our medical partner’s care center. This procedure will allow him to live more comfortably and confidently. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), is requesting $299 to fund this procedure.
Manith’s father says, “I hope his foot will heal well and feel good after the surgery.”
