47-year-old Phon lives in Cambodia with his wife and two sons. When he is not working on the farm or at the factory, he enjoys spending time at home and cleaning the grounds around his house.
Last year, “Phon was in a moto accident and fractured his right tibia,” reports our medical partner Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). “He walks with crutches now and is in pain.”
Phon needs surgery to properly fix his leg. However, even working two jobs, Phon does not make enough money to pay for these medical expenses. He travelled three hours with his wife to reach CSC, and for $405 doctors will perform an ORIF procedure to align Phon’s fractured bones. Once aligned, the bones will be secured with pins so that they can properly heal in the right position.
After his operation, Phon will be able to walk again free of pain. “When I am healed I will go home and find a job,” Phon shares.
