Manith is a 19-year-old with two brothers, two sisters, and his parents are rice farmers. He recently got a job feeding and looking after ducks. In his free time, he enjoys playing volleyball and going out with his friends.
In 2020, Manith was in a motorbike accident and fractured his right clavicle and patella. He went to an emergency hospital and he had a sling fixed for the clavicle fracture and a tension bend wire for his patella. Now, it is time to remove the fracture hardware from his knee so he can fully heal and be out of risk for infection.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On January 11th, Manith will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $304. This procedure will help him walk easily again.
He shared, “After I have surgery, I want to walk easily again and do my new job well.”

Manith underwent fracture surgery and is eager to get back to walking and work.
Manith traveled three hours to have the hardware removed from his fracture site. He will take antibiotics to reduce any chance of infection and work with the physiotherapist to increase strength in his leg. He hopes that within a few weeks, he will improve the flexion in his leg and walk normally again. Being able to walk will improve Manith’s chances of a good job to support his family, and of returning to his active life.
Manith said: “After surgery, I felt good because the hardware was removed from my right knee. There is not much pain in the wound and I am happy. CSC staff work closely with the patients and are very good.”
