Sakana is a 20-year-old farmer who enjoys cooking, watching Thai movies, listening to music and taking walks with her husband. She has been married to her husband for two years, and both work as potato farmers to earn a living.
In November of 2019, Sakana was in a motor vehicle accident, which resulted in the fracturing of her right femur. After the accident, she underwent surgery at a local government hospital, which entailed the insertion of nails to repair the fracture. Now, nearly three years later, the bone is completely healed and Sakana needs to have the metal hardware removed from her femur.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On May 12th, Sakana will undergo a hardware removal procedure at our medical partner’s care center Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre. Sakana was able to contribute $100 towards her treatment. With this procedure, Sakana will be able to complete her rehabilitation and resume her normal activities without discomfort.
Sakana said, “I hope the surgery will be easy and my leg will heal quickly.”
