November 2, 2022

Sokvisal is a 23-year-old man, living in Cambodia. He has three younger siblings - a brother, and two sisters - all of whom are in school. His father is a rainy day rice and vegetable farmer, while his mother is a teacher at a high school. Sokvisal enjoys reading and listening to music.

Sokvisal was a student when in June 2019, he was involved in a motorcycle collision. He fractured several of the bones in his right arm, as well as his tibia. Sokvisal’s family took him to Vietnam for treatment, where he underwent surgery to repair the fractures. In Cambodia, doctors attempted to treat his brachial plexus injury, but they were unsuccessful, leaving Sokvisal without the ability to move his right arm. He can’t complete school or go to work, which has left him feeling very depressed.

Sokvisal sought help from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre. Now he is scheduled to undergo surgery on November 3rd, at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre. Doctors hope they will be able to improve his overall finger and upper limb function. Sokvisal needs your help to raise the $600 to fund this life changing procedure.

Sokvisal said: “After surgery, I hope I can use my right arm to be more independent.”

Shurem is an 8-year-old boy from Kenya. He is the third born in a family of four children. His mother is a housewife while his father is a casual laborer who herds cattle for people in his community. However, the ongoing drought in the region has made it difficult for him to find work. The family is unable to raise the required funds to pay for medical expenses. Shurem has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain and increases intracranial pressure. As a result of his condition, Shurem has been experiencing an increasing head circumference. When Shurem was two years old, he started experiencing fevers which were managed with medication. A few days later, his parents started to notice his head was increasing in size. Despite a review from the hospital and the administration of medication, his condition only became worse, and he stopped walking. Late last year the community referred his family to BethanyKids first mobile clinic in their hometown Garissa County, as they had stopped seeking treatment for Shurem for a few years. The mobile clinic referred Shurem to BethanyKids, where he was examined and diagnosed with hydrocephalus. Without treatment, Shurem will experience severe physical and developmental delays. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $720 to cover the cost of surgery for Shurem that will treat his hydrocephalus. The procedure is scheduled to take place on February 9th and will drain the excess fluid from Shurem's brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve his quality of life. With proper treatment, Shurem will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young boy. Shurem’s father says, “I feel very bad for my son as I cannot help him in any way. I want him to be well and back in good health.”
