Simeng is a 21-year-old welder. He lives in Kampong Cham province with his wife, one-year-old daughter, and mother-in-law.
His wife works as a tailor out of their house, and his mother-in-law helps with childcare while Simeng is at his welding job. In his free time, he enjoys playing volleyball in the village and checking his social media.
In March 2021, Simeng was in a motorbike accident and fractured his left femur and tibia. It is difficult for him to walk and he is in chronic pain. Since the accident, he has barely been able to work.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On September 13, Simeng will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $483. This procedure will help him walk easily again.
He shared, “I hope I can have surgery so that I can walk again and return to work full-time.”
