Sophea is a friendly and active three-year-old from Cambodia who enjoys playing with his friends and riding his bike. He also loves to eat his favorite foods: popcorn, fried rice, fried potatoes, and ice cream! He has one older brother and two older sisters. To support their family, his father works as a construction worker, and his mother works as a farmer.
In 2020, Sophea’s right foot was burned by fire while he was playing. A scar contracture has since developed, causing the skin around the toes on his foot to tighten.
When Sophea’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), they traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On August 9th, surgeons at CSC will perform a skin graft procedure, allowing Sophea to regain mobility of his right toes. Now, his family needs help funding this $487 procedure.
Sophea shares that he hopes his right foot will be healed and he can walk easily after surgery. He also hopes he will be able to wear shoes and sandals.
