Pheap is a 41-year-old monk from Cambodia. Pheap’s mother and father passed away when he was a young boy. After their passing, Pheap went to live in a local monastery and has now been a monk for many years. He engages in various religious activities, including meditation and chanting. In his free time, he enjoys studying Buddhist texts and performing daily rituals that align with his faith.
In 2020, Pheap was in a motorbike accident and fractured his left femur. At a government hospital, he had surgery to repair the fracture. During the surgery, a rod was inserted into the top of his femur and guided down through the fracture site. The fracture has since healed, but the placement of the rod is now causing Pheap chronic pain. As a result, Pheap wants to remove the hardware.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help. On April 28th, Pheap will undergo a hardware removal procedure. This procedure will remove the nagging ache he still has in his leg, allowing him to move about without pain. CSC is requesting $304 to fund the procedure.
Pheap shared, “I hope the hardware will be easily removed and I will heal quickly.”
