Ravy is a 32-year-old construction worker. He and his wife live in Phnom Penh province, and they have two sons. The oldest son is five years old and in primary school and the younger son is two years old. Ravy’s wife works in a clothes factory. In his free time, Ravy likes to play soccer, volleyball, and sing songs with his children.
In September 2023, Ravy fell off his motorbike and hurt his left hand. He visited a Khmer traditional healer for treatment, but his hand remains swollen. He cannot extend or flex his wrist, and he has chronic pain. This injury makes it impossible for him to work to support his family.
At the suggestion of his grandmother, Ravy visited our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) for a diagnosis and treatment. He was found to have a fracture of his wrist and hand. Fortunately, surgeons at CSC can help. On October 16, Ravy will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $483. This surgery will mend his fracture and help him to use his hand again.
Ravy needs help to pay for this essential surgery.
Ravy said: “I hope after surgery, I will have no pain and I can use my hand to work again.”
