Neang is a 38-year-old tuk-tuk driver. Neang comes from Kompong Speu Province in Cambodia. Since his father passed away ten years ago, Neang has decided to stay with his mother to take care of her. He also has five siblings that live in his area, and many nieces and nephews. When he is not working, he enjoys playing sports, cooking for his mother, and visiting his siblings.
In 2008, Neang was involved in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture of his right femur. He visited a government hospital after the accident, where doctors fixated hardware to heal the fracture. The hardware has recently become infected and exposed. It has become difficult for Neang to walk, and he is experiencing chronic pain and discomfort.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On November 9th, Neang will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. This procedure will allow his leg to heal and help him walk easily again.
Neang said, “I hope my leg can heal quickly, so that I can work again and make sure my mother is cared for.”
