Leang is a seven-year-old 2nd grade student. She has one 12-year-old brother. Leang’s father is a truck driver and her mother sells soft drinks by their home. At school Leang is good at math and wants to be a math teacher in the future.
Four years ago, Leang was in a traffic accident and injured her left hand. She received a month of treatment including skin grafts and wound dressings after the accident at a local hospital. The skin has healed but a contracture formed causing a tightening around her left hand and between fingers. Now it is difficult for her to grasp objects and carry anything with her left hand.
When Leang’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 7th, surgeons at CSC will perform a burn contracture release surgery to to use her hand again. Now, she needs help to fund this $477 procedure.
Leang’s mother says, “I hope her hand heals and she can recover well.”

Leang underwent burn treatment.
Leang has had to undergo several surgeries to help treat her hand since the car accident four years ago. As a result, she was nervous about her procedure at CSC, but the staff put her and her family at ease. The surgery went well, and Leang returned home to continue her healing. Leang is so excited to return to school soon and be able to hold objects in her left hand. Leang also shared that she looks forward to no longer having to visit the hospital for any more procedures!
Leang’s mother said, “We are very happy Leang was able to have surgery so her hand will be normal and other children will not make fun of her. Leang is a bright girl, and this will give her confidence to excel in school. Thank you to the CSC staff and the donors who helped so that Leang can have a normal hand.”
