Pisey is a 26-year-old driver from Cambodia. He lives in Phnom Penh, where he worked full-time as a personal driver. However, due to a car accident, Pisey cannot continue his occupation and finds himself confined to his home, where he resides, with his parents and grandmother, who work as rice farmers. He likes watching videos on social media and misses going out with his friends, working, and being active.
On June 4th, another car crashed into him from the side, and Pisey fractured his right leg. He was taken to a nearby emergency hospital, where he had surgery to repair the fracture with external fixation. The fracture is healing well, but there is an infected wound at the site of the metalwork, and he can no longer afford treatment at the hospital where he was initially treated. He cannot walk or work and is in constant pain.
When Pisey learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled there seeking treatment. On June 28th, surgeons at CSC will perform a skin graft procedure to help heal the wound and get him walking and able to work again. Now, Pisey needs help to fund this $487 procedure.
Pisey shared that he hopes to be able to relieve the pain and get back to work as soon as possible.
