Hen is a 46-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. She lives in Kampot province with her husband and her three children. Both Hen and her husband recently got jobs in construction, after many years as rice farmers. In her free time, Hen likes spending time with her family and growing vegetables around her house.
In 2020, Hen was in a motorbike accident and fractured her left knee. She was taken to a nearby clinic and treated for the fracture with internal hardware. The fracture has healed, but she developed chronic pain and muscle stiffness in her left leg. She is unable to fully straighten her knee, which makes everyday activities extremely difficult or impossible.
When Hen learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On July 11th, surgeons at CSC will perform a quadricepsplasty procedure on her left leg. This procedure will help her improve her leg function and mobility. Now, Hen needs help to fund this $482 procedure.
She shared, “I hope I can go home and be able to walk and not be in pain.”
