Seangkun is a 51-year-old mother who lives in Prey Veng province with her husband. Her daughter and grandson live nearby and visit often. Seangkun, her husband, daughter, and son-in-law all work as farmers in the rice paddies. When she’s not in the fields, she occasionally sells rice in the local village market. In her free time, she likes spending time with her grandson and cooking Cambodian soups.
In 2020, Seangkun fell near her house and fractured her right forearm. She went to a small clinic near her village and doctors implanted metal hardware to heal the fracture. Now, the bone is united, but the metalwork is causing pain and limiting the function in her arm.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) can help. On July 7th, Seangkun will undergo a hardware removal procedure. She is able to contribute $100 to her care and needs only $304 to fully fund the procedure. This care will help her use her arm easily again and eliminate pain.
Seangkun shared, “I hope I can go home with no pain in my arm. I want to be able to use my arm for work and taking care of my family.”
