Huon is a loving and caring grandmother from Cambodia. She is married and has five sons, two daughters, and 19 beautiful grandchildren. Some of her favorite ways to spend time are looking after her grandchildren and listening to old music.
In April, Huon was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture of her left forearm. After the accident, she attempted to alleviate her pain using medication. Although Huon’s daughter wanted to bring her to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, Huon initially refused out of fear of surgery. Now that the pain has worsened, she has agreed to visit a hospital. It is difficult for her to use her left arm, and she is in chronic pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On July 20th, Huon will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $483. Now, she needs help funding her surgery and care, which will heal the fracture.
Huon says, “I hope I can use my arm again and the pain will go away.”

Huon underwent fracture repair surgery to heal an injury caused by a motor vehicle accident.
Huon was reluctant to have surgery, but her pain kept her from doing the things she liked to do. Although she waited four months to have surgery, surgeons successfully repaired her fracture and straightened her wrist deformity. She spent several days in the hospital and when her incision has healed further, she will work with the physiotherapist to learn rehabilitative exercises once her cast has been removed. Huon will be able to return to the activities she enjoyed before she was injured, like looking after her grandchildren.
Huon’s husband said: “I’m so happy to see my wife will do better. We are grateful to the staff at the hospital and the donors who gave money so she could have this operation to get rid of her pain. Thank you!”
