Sangva is a 42-year-old taxi driver from Cambodia. He is married and has two sons and three daughters. During his free time, he enjoys playing volleyball and spending time with his friends.
In February, Sangva was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture of his left humerus, a bone in the arm. He went to an emergency clinic where doctors fixated hardware to heal his injury. The bone is now healed, and the hardware must be removed to prevent future complications.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On July 18th, Sangva will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $304. This procedure will allow his arm to be fully healed.
Sangva says, “I hope I will be able to return to work soon.”

Sangva underwent hardware removal surgery to prevent future complications.
Sangva had successful surgery to remove the hardware from his arm. He rested at the hospital for several days and took antibiotics to ensure the surgical site did not get infected. The physiotherapist worked with him to regain strength and flexibility, and he is happy that the nagging pain in his arm will be gone. Sangva can now work as a taxi driver without the constant ache in his arm. He can now better help with family finances to support his children and looks forward to becoming active in volleyball again.
Sangva said: “I am so thankful that I was able to have the pins removed which made it hard for me to drive my taxi. I am very grateful that you helped me to have this surgery. We feel very lucky.”
